Citizens for Clean Power (CCP) is a grass roots citizens coalition in Delaware that calls for regulatory action to significantly reduce emissions at the Indian River Power Plant. CCP seeks to establish regulatory mechanisms that protect and promote public health and safety. The group has lobbied the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) to set a more stringent timetable for reducing sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and mercury emissions.

CCP’s efforts contributed to the cancellation of the proposed expansion of the Indian River plant and the recommendation by the Delaware Public Service Commission to negotiate a contract with Bluewater Wind for an offshore windfarm to meet the state’s growing power needs.
