  • Reply to: British Columbia’s carbon tax shift: An environmental and economic success   2 weeks 3 days ago

    Taxes, even revenue-neutral taxes, shift spending. In this case, as less money is being spent on dirty energy, the money saved will be spent on other goods and services generating more tax revenue. This is especially relevant when it comes to personal vehicle use. Electric cars are making a headway against internal combustion (ICE). The money spent per mile driven for EV vs. ICE is approximately 20%. Here in the U.S., we spend over half a trillion dollars for gasoline every year.

    Once all cars are running on renewable electricity instead of gasoline or diesel, the savings to consumers will be over $400 billion per year. This money will still be spent, but instead of going to the oil companies, it'll be spread across a much broader sector of the economy generating millions of jobs over time.

  • Reply to: Lighting rural Bangladesh with rooftop solar & carbon credits   3 weeks 8 hours ago

    I am very pleased to announce that almost 400,000 carbon credits were issued for the Bangladesh Solar Homes Systems Programme of Activities (POA), generated by 12 individual programs owned by Grameen Shatki (the largest Partner Organization) and IDCOL (the coordinating managing entity).

    This is the biggest-ever issuance for a POA in a least developed country, and the largest issuance in Bangladesh to date. The World Bank Group’s Community Development Carbon Fund provided support through technical assistance and is purchasing the carbon credits, creating a revenue stream for the program.

    As I wrote in the blog above, this program provides access to electricity and jobs in poor rural communities by installing solar panels on the roofs of homes and small businesses. Under this POA, 2.8 million solar home systems have been installed, benefitting over 9 million people.
