    Going out of business, clean air in Texas

    Last year, when the developers of the proposed Las Brisas Energy Center pressured the EPA for an exemption from climate pollution limits, you and more than 8,000 other CREDO activists fought back and told the EPA not to let the dirty petroleum coke plant off the hook.

    The EPA stood strong — and late last week the plant's developers announced that they're scrapping plans for the project. This is a major victory for clean air in Texas, and your activism helped make it possible.

    In a statement announcing the project's demise, Chase Power Development CEO Dave Freysinger specifically cited EPA's tough rules as reason for the plant being scrapped.1

    In the weeks and months to come we'll continue fighting proposed and existing dirty power plants in Texas. I'll be sure to let you know when there are opportunities to get involved.

    Thanks for your activism — it makes a difference.
