Oregon, Washington, California, and British Columbia announced a regional partnership to place a price on carbon called the Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy. The three states and province will use a unified set of rules and regulations to speed adoption of advanced energy technologies.
“AEE applauds the landmark Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy signed this week by the leaders of California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia” said Steve Chadima, senior vice president and director, California initiatives at Advanced Energy Economy. “A region-wide commitment to fairly pricing carbon and supporting low-carbon fuel standards will create a more seamless environment for businesses operating along the entire Pacific coast. This reinforces and expands on the great strides the advanced energy industries have made towards a prosperous future based on clean, secure and affordable energy.”
