We in Virginia need to do our part in bringing down carbon emissions.
Recent heat waves have shown the need to act to stop climate change.
RGGI is working. Since joining RGGI, Virginia’s power plant emissions have consistently decreased—by 12.5% between 2020 and 2021 and by nearly 8% between 2021 and 2022. These recent reductions follow a decade without RGGI, where Virginia’s emissions were “fairly constant” with “no discernible trend”.
