In its filed comments, Virginia Advanced Energy Economy supported the Va. Dept. of Environmental Quality's proposed regulations to implement a carbon trading system to reduce emissions to meet  Governor McAuliffe's Executive Directive 11, highlighting positive economic impact, including significant in-state investment (up to $4.6 billion) and adding 30,000 to 40,000 jobs. 

Virginia AEE used the State Tool for Electricity Emission Reductions (STEER), an integrated resource-planning modeling tool, to identify the least-cost ways for Virginia to implement DEQ proposed carbon mitigation rules.
