Protect Clean Energy Policy in Virginia 2023
Tell Gov. Youngkin: Protect Virginia’s Clean Energy Future
In the last few years, Virginia has become a clean energy leader with the passing of landmark legislation including the Virginia Clean Economy Act, Clean Car Standards, and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Generation180’s Virginia Drives Electric 2022 Report found that Virginians are overwhelmingly in favor of the clean energy transition.
But our future is under attack by legislators who want to unlawfully repeal the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and put Virginia’s economy, climate, and public health at risk. RGGI is a cooperative, market-based effort among Virginia and 11 other states to reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector. To date, the initiative has brought $657 million to the state of Virginia – funding flood resilience, home weatherization, and energy efficiency and affordable housing projects across the state.
Let’s work together to protect our future and build a clean energy economy that benefits all Virginians. Tell Gov. Youngkin today to protect Virginia’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.
