Carbon Free New York

Understand our mission

“… Introducing a “social cost” of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into New York’s competitive, wholesale energy markets can help the state meet its clean energy goals faster and more cost-effectively while reducing emissions and maintaining grid reliability.” – Analysis Group’s Clean Energy in New York State Report

We are a coalition of like-minded organizations who recognize New York’s opportunity to be the nation’s clean energy leader by decarbonizing our electricity sector with a market-based model that fights climate change, improves public health, and preserves states’ abilities to choose and achieve their own clean energy policy goals. We believe incorporating the social cost of carbon within the electricity sector via NYISO’s carbon pricing proposal, will align New York’s wholesale electricity markets with its decarbonization public policy objectives set forth in the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act (CLCPA).
