RGGI (aka REGGIE) is a cooperative effort among 11 Eastern states to cap and reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector. The pact requires polluters to reduce their carbon emissions and buy carbon credits as carbon limits gradually become more strict, speeding up the shift to clean energy. RGGI also generates revenue to help communities hit hardest by pollution from fossil fuels.

In March, the N.C. Environmental Management Commission is expected to vote on whether to join RGGI. Governor Cooper can push them to vote YES but he needs to hear from us. The Sierra Club has created an ACTION PAGE with a form that makes it easy to add your personal comments to an email message directed to Governor Cooper
