Are clean air credits the same as carbon credits?



  1. 0 Votes

    Carbon credits are an essential component of a cap and trade program. Generally one credit is equal to one ton of carbon dioxide or in some markets a ton of carbon-dioxide-equivalent gas. Industries that emit a lower amount of carbon dioxide than the permitted amount are granted credits that they can then sell to companies that are unable to meet those minimum standards. As far as I can tell, a clean-air credit is a tax credit an individual can claim for purchasing a hybrid or electric vehicle.
