    already in place to reduce emissions from electricity discussed below will help states comply with the Clean Power Plan Economy wide caps on global warming pollution adopted by seven states reduce emissions from a wide range of sources California Connecticut Hawaii Massachusetts Maryland New Jersey and Rhode Island have adopted broad caps on emissions that when implemented fully will reduce pollution by 242 MMTCO2 in 2025 California s cap for example calls for cutting global warming pollution to 1990 levels by 2020 and to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 The state will achieve these savings by improving the efficiency of vehicles increasing energy efficiency and boosting renewable energy generation among other measures More than 80 percent of the savings from the state caps come from California s actions both because the state is large and because it has pledged to make the deepest cuts in emissions State and federal policies will reduce wasteful energy use As a result of current policy commitments by 2025 new homes and businesses will use less energy and many existing buildings will have been renovated to cut energy use Appliances will provide the same functions as today while consuming less electricity and natural gas Less energy will be needed to provide lighting Federal appliance efficiency standards and state ratepayer funded programs to reduce energy waste in homes and businesses will reduce pollution by 235 MMTCO2 in 2025 compared to emissions without these programs Emissions from cars SUVs and light duty trucks which together represent the biggest source of pollution from transportation will be 10 percent lower in 2025 due to improved vehicle fuel economy and emission standards As a result of national and state policy a typical new car in 2025 will go nearly 17 miles farther on a gallon of gas than a typical new car in 2015 National adoption of the global warming pollution standards in the Clean Cars Program a policy originally developed by California and 13 other states means that passenger vehicles will produce 179 MMTCO2 less in 2025 than would otherwise have been the case More wind solar and other clean energy generation will reduce the nation s reliance on electricity from coal and natural gas Wind energy production tripled from 2008 to 2014 while solar generation grew by an average of 65 percent per year from 2010 to 2013 With the right policy support this growth in renewable energy will continue Twenty eight states and Washington D C currently have renewable energy requirements driving growth in wind and solar energy with many benefits and little to no cost to consumers These policies will reduce emissions by 57 MMTCO2 in 2025 The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative RGGI will produce nationally significant reductions in power plant emissions Nine Northeastern states have adopted a regional cap on emissions from power plants By requiring power plant operators to purchase pollution permits RGGI creates a financial incentive for electricity generators to cut pollution Funds from the sale of permits support investment in
