New Jersey To Rejoin The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative


The results of the New Jersey regrouping with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative can be a more compelling reduction of carbon dioxide emissions released by New Jersey power plants.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative will reinvest money in projects to reduce gas emissions

An executive order has been signed by the Governor Phil Murphy on January 29th, creating the foundation of the New Jersey return in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative force power plants to pay taxes depending on how much carbon dioxide they emit in excess of the limit permitted limit levels. With the money raised, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative makes investments in projects that combat carbon dioxide emissions.
