Benefits of Membership

Membership in ACAA provides support for the development, implementation, and continuation of effective programs for the management and use of CCPs. There are numerous benefits for coal-burning electric utilities resulting from the use of CCPs in lieu of disposal. In addition to avoiding disposal costs and creating revenue, added benefits come from public and government recognition of the utility as a supporter of sound policies for recycling and sustainable development. ACAA members share a common interest in using CCPs as valuable products to enhance revenues, minimize disposal costs, reduce liability, and support environmental policies. ACAA members are active at national, regional, state, and local levels.
