Policymakers in North Carolina are currently considering whether the state will join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) as a key component to achieving our statewide climate goals.
RGGI is a regional climate program that sets a declining cap on carbon pollution from the power sector while generating revenue that can be invested in the local clean energy industry. Currently, 11 states participate in RGGI and have seen economic and environmental benefits from this program, including deep reductions in carbon emissions, local job creation, and a boost to their economies. If NC does join RGGI, it could set our state on a path to spurring its economy while taking a meaningful step in the effort to address our climate pollution.
Please join E2 for a discussion with policy experts and business leaders on how RGGI works, the success of RGGI in participating states, and the projected benefits to NC if our state moves forward with the plan to join RGGI.
