There’s a new study out that finds the President’s Clean Power Plan would actually save you a lot of money on your monthly electricity bill.
Marilyn Brown from Georgia Tech says Texas households would save an average of 2,500 dollars during the plans first 15 years.
She says the plan’s energy efficiency measures are often misunderstood.
“A lot of analysts say that the Clean Power Plan is going to bankrupt the nation. But what we’re showing is in fact, if done wisely, we can save consumers money and also prevent fossil fuels from heating up the planet.”
However, Congressman Lamar Smith disagrees. he says the plan would not only drive up energy costs, it would also result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs.
