This analysis quantifies the potential cost to the coal-fired electric generation industry from EPA's proposed rule on the disposal of coal combustion residuals. It includes an assessment of the incremental compliance costs of the Subtitle C proposed regulatory option. Costs for this analysis were developed at the individual generating unit and plant level and aggregated to develop a national industry cost estimate. The analytical model used to estimate the costs utilizes a Monte Carlo framework to account for parameter uncertainty in input cost components and uncertainty in disposal decision by individual coal-fired plants. The total incremental cost to the industry over a 20-year period for the proposed Subtitle C option is estimated between $54.66 billion and $76.84 billion present value (at a discount rate of seven percent). This estimate represents only the incremental cost due to Subtitle C regulation over baseline costs and does not include disposal site construction and operation costs.
