The RGGI proposes to discourage energy production by fossil fuels by capping it and selling the credits to encourage  Green energy Wind, Solar while ignoring the economics

  • First, significant production and distribution assets will be required (and not disclosed in Green industry cost estimates) and electricity consumers will be required to pay for these.
  • Second, the economics of the replacement generation have to be recognized.
  • Electricity price increases in Virginia are already a problem
  • Virginia consumers have benefited from lower prices for electricity…but that will change if we ignor the high cost of green energy
