New Program Proposed To Cut Down Carbon Emissions In CA

California may soon have the nation’s most extensive cap-and-trade program for reducing carbon emissions. The Air Resources Board spent all Thursday hearing testimony on the proposed cap-and-trade rules.

Even Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made an unscheduled appearance at the hearing to urge adoption of the plan.

"I want to show California that we can protect both the economy and the environment. And of course it’s a challenge to do that, there’s no two ways about that. But where there’s a will, there’s a way," Schwarzenegger said.

The proposal is a part of the state’s “global warming solutions act” which is intended to return California to 1990 carbon dioxide levels by 2020. The cap-and-trade program would put limits on how much carbon dioxide California based companies can emit. If they exceed their limit, they can buy carbon credits from the state or other groups with surplus credits.

This new legislation is great news for our customers. It creates a new revenue stream for them based on the value of their reduced emissions from using FPC. Our extensive testing has shown that users of FPC reduce their CO2 emissions more than 8% on average. If the value of CO2 is $10/metric ton, then this new revenue stream will amount to thousands of dollars per month for our typical users.

We have a calculator on our web page that details all of the savings FPC provides.
