RGGI is an initiative of 10 New England and Mid-Atlantic states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector while generating economic growth. The program sets a regional cap on CO2 emissions from electric power plants, and individual power plants in each state can purchase and trade allowances for emissions, maintaining the regional limit.
