ISO New England RGGI Study Results Vary Allowance Prices New England RGGI Units CO 2 Emissions vs. CO 2 Allowance Price Assumes No Resource Additions and Allows Leakage
ISO New England RGGI Study Results Leakage Leakage: CO 2 emissions from small units in RGGI States and units in non-RGGI States For an allowance cost of $10/ton, the RGGI cap causes total CO 2 leakage in 2015 from non-RGGI units in New England of over 3 million tons
