EDF Statement on Announcement of First 'Climate Credit' for Californians"

March 31, 2014

“The Climate Credit is a perfect example of climate policy working for every Californian – from their wallets to the health of their communities. Today’s announcement is a direct result of statewide action to fight climate change, cut pollution, and help California usher in a clean-energy economy.  We must continue to unlock opportunities that provide people with cleaner, cheaper energy and educate Californians on the vital role they can play in achieving a low-carbon future. When everyone does their part, everyone benefits.”

Lauren Navarro, California Senior Manager, Clean Energy, Environmental Defense Fund
