Public Comment Sought for U.S. EPA's 'RE-Powering America's Land' Action Plan

The U.S. EPA is in the process of updating its 2008 plan to promote renewable energy on formerly contaminated land, mines, or landfill sites.

The U.S. EPA is looking for public comment on the latest "Action Plan" in accordance with the 2008 "RE-Powering America's Land" initiative. According to the plan's website, "To define goals, articulate activities and make them transparent to its stakeholders, the Initiative periodically develops an action plan. This action plan details specific activities for the Initiative over the next two years."

Specifically, the EPA is hoping commenters will provide insight about whether the measures included in "RE-Powering" will impact considerations to develop renewable energy, whether the initiative complements, rather than duplicates, other incentives for renewable energy production, and if there are other measures the plan should enact.
