Curbing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has proposed a state plan to reduce carbon emission from power plants, capping emissions at 30 percent by 2030 and allowing Virginia to trade carbon allowances with other states. You can read about the plan here.

DEQ opened the 60-day public comment period on January 8. DEQ also has public hearings around the state scheduled for March, including one at the Woodbridge DEQ office on March 15, 5 p.m., Department of Environmental Quality, Northern Regional Office, 13901 Crown Court, Woodbridge, VA.  Click here.
