Protect RGGI

Virginians across our Commonwealth rely on RGGI funding to protect their communities and keep their energy bills in check. While the price of electricity has gone up 9% in the rest of the country, prices in RGGI states have actually declined by 6%, keeping money in the pockets of Virginia consumers. The money pulled in by Virginia from RGGI then goes toward building resilience infrastructure for some our most climate-endangered communities facing the threat of devastating floods, such as what was seen in Buchanan earlier this year. It's a good deal for Virginians from top to bottom and it's vital that Governor Youngkin defend our participation in RGGI.
