Use market principles, supported by many businesses, to improve energy efficiencies

As the Ceres group has written:  

Major companies in Virginia have been some of the strongest advocates for state policies to cut climate pollution and invest in the clean energy future, and they want to see the state keep moving toward a low-carbon future.  

"RGGI is one of many important tools that exist in Virginia to help businesses cut energy costs, avoid the volatility of fuel prices, and stay competitive.  Our companies are motivated to make investments in places where we can continue to access these types of policies."

Do not withdraw the Commonwealth from the RGGI, as our "wealth" depends upon the health of the lives we bequeath in common to our grandchildren.
