RGGI in Pennsylvania: Opportunities to Grow Pennsylvania’s Clean Energy Economy

February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In October, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced that Pennsylvania would begin the process of joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). RGGI (pronounced “Reggie”) is a market-based initiative among ten states in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic that caps carbon pollution from the electric power sector while creating investment dollars for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and more. RGGI has been in operation for over ten years.
Join us for a webinar on Friday, February 28th at 12:00 Eastern to learn what RGGI is and what it means for Pennsylvania businesses. Speakers will provide a historical context of the program, examine Pennsylvania’s process for joining RGGI, and discuss opportunities for investment of RGGI proceeds in ways that will help to grow Pennsylvania’s economy. Speakers include: – Hayley Book, PA Dept. of Environmental Protection – Jackson Morris, Natural Resources Defense Council – Dan Reilly, Director of Public Affairs, Efficiency Vermont
