The results of this study show that an emissions standard for existing power plants set at 26% below 2012 levels can be achieved at no net cost to the economy. This standard will create 611,000 new jobs, and it will have a positive economic impact on the country. If enacted, the energy efficiency policies in our study can significantly reduce greenhouse gases while states maintain the flexibility to make use of all of their energy resources. The policies and technologies included in our analysis have already been tested and are deployable now. The benefits can be quantified. There is no need to delay.
