RGGI info sheet
If the Commonwealth withdraws from RGGI, Virginia residents, consumers and businesses stand to lose.
RGGI brings economic, health and energy efficiency benefits to participating states.
Flooding is the most costly and common natural disaster in Virginia. RGGI funds are the only source of state funds for flood preparedness, both coastal and inland, and demand is high.
RGGI funds allow weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades that can save Virginia families 25 to 30 percent on electricity bills each year.
Even after only one year of participating in RGGI, VA has received over $200 million for climate adaptation, flood-preparedness, and energy efficiency for low-income communities.
