Pennsylvania Allowances Removed From Sept. 7 Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative Auction

On August 19, the
Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative announced Pennsylvania is removing its allowances for sale at the next allowance auction on September 7.

The action was no doubt taken in response to the ongoing legal challenges to DEP’s final Carbon Pollution Reduction Program regulations by various Republican Senators, some power companies and labor unions.  Read more here.

Commonwealth Court issued a preliminary injunction pausing the program on July 8, but DEP appealed that decision to the PA Supreme Court and is now awaiting a decision.  Read more here.

Visit the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative website for more information on the removal of Pennsylvania’s allowances.
