“… 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).

Why We Care
Carbon emissions can severely affect public health.
Climate change is caused in part by carbon emissions across the world.
The right policies will efficiently decarbonize New York’s electricity sector at the lowest cost to consumers.
The mission of Carbon Free New York Coalition (CFNY) is to encourage all stakeholders and policymakers to work together to implement the NYISO carbon pricing proposal in a timely and efficient manner. By incorporating the cost of carbon into the electricity sector, New York will align its wholesale electricity markets with its public policy objectives to decarbonize the electricity sector as set forth in the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act (CLCPA).
