Cooler Together

Since it began in 2008, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), the nation’s first regional program for limiting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, has been wildly successful. The program, in place in nine northeastern and mid-Atlantic states, caps power plant emissions, puts a price on carbon pollution, and reinvests much of the revenue into programs that advance the region’s transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.

Plugging In

The adoption of large numbers of electric vehicles (EVs) offers many benefits for cities, including cleaner air and the opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Electric vehicles are far cleaner than gasoline-powered cars, with lower greenhouse gas emissions and lower emissions of the pollutants that contribute to smog and particulate matter.
