Power PA Jobs Alliance: TAKE ACTION BY 9-1-21
Updated On: Aug 18, 2021

The Pennsylvania Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) will determine whether to approve or disapprove the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) regulation on September 1, 2021. Working in partnership with the Power PA Jobs Alliance - a coalition of labor, consumer and business leaders - we have set up a TAKE ACTION WEBSITE that will allow you to send your comments IRRC in opposition to RGGI to IRRC.

Please click on the following link - - and communicate your strong opposition to RGGI ASAP. And PLEASE pass this along to friends, family, neighbors who share your support for blue collar energy jobs and commitment to ensure that all electricity consumers continue to have access to reliable, low cost power.

As explained on the Power PA Jobs Alliance website, if not stopped, RGGI will prematurely eliminate thousands of blue collar jobs who work in and support Pennsylvania coal and natural gas electric generation plants. It will also effectively preclude the construction of new natural gas plants within Pennsylvania. Organized labor built $14 billion worth of natural gas plants in the past 10 years. Many of these jobs will be lost to neighboring, pro-coal and pro-natural gas states, like Ohio and West Virginia. Additionally, electric rates will increase for Pennsylvania consumers - residential, commercial and industrial - as much as 18 percent as a result of RGGI.

Please take action now!

             Thank you.
