The District of Columbia could take a leading role in reducing greenhouse gases if it adopted a proposed local carbon fee. But what is the impact on jobs, output and revenue?

The Center for Climate Strategies will release a new study on the potential economic effects of a carbon fee plan proposed by a coalition of organizations at a luncheon presentation on July 27th, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. hosted by REMI.

Scott Williamson, Program Management Officer for CCS, will discuss the estimated impacts over time on carbon emissions, revenue, and employment. Copies of the report will be available at the luncheon.

If adopted, the proposed carbon fee would start in 2019 at $20 per ton of greenhouse gases emitted, rising $10 per year until reaching $150 per ton in 2032. Current proposed revenue uses include: per-capita “carbon rebates;” business tax credits; and energy efficiency, green infrastructure and clean energy investments.

REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington D.C. 20005. Stay tuned for updates on this special event, including any change in venue.
