 To determine the economic impact of a carbon fee solution to the Clean Power Plan in Arkansas, CCL commissioned an economic study by Regional Economic Models, Inc (REMI)
The study is focused on how a carbon fee in Arkansas would help the state comply with the strictures of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) to reduce the carbon dioxide emitted from existing power plants. It examines the potential economic, demographic, fiscal, and emissions impact of a fee on carbon dioxide in Arkansas.
