The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is a key part of most Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States’ strategy to reduce pollution from fossil fuels and shift to clean energy. By limiting carbon pollution from power plants, requiring emitters to buy permits to pollute and investing the revenues in energy efficiency and renewable energy, RGGI has helped states participating in the RGGI program meet our environmental and energy challenges while curbing dependence on fossil fuels and saving consumers money.
We invite you to join the Sierra Club's work to educate about and advocate for sustainable energy policies.
To place our current energy and climate crisis in context, our relationships with our energy systems have dramatically changed over the past few generations. Government and industry have worked together to build a networked energy system to supply passive consumers who are not only disengaged from the energy life-cycle and its resultant environmental impacts, but who also do not have an understanding of the risks involved.
