What is carbon cash-back?

When pollution is free we get too much of it. We can put a price on climate pollution by charging fossil fuel producers a fee. By giving all the money collected from a carbon fee back to every citizen equally, we’ll drive emissions down and protect family budgets during the transition to a clean energy future.

How will it benefit families, the economy, and our planet?

  • The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act will drive down our nation’s carbon pollution and bring climate change under control. 
  • How it works: A fee is placed on fossil fuel production and imports at the source: mine, wellhead or port of entry. 100% of net revenue collected is returned equally to American households as a dividend to compensate for associated increased costs of goods and services.
  • Families get paid
    • Money goes back to households as a carbon dividend: they choose how to spend it.
    • 80% of middle and low income households will see a net-positive income boost or essentially break even.
    •  2⁄3 of all families will receive more money than they pay in higher prices, ALL individuals retain control of their energy choices.
    • In year ten, a family of four would receive a $4,410 annual dividend.
    • Find out how much your family would receive.
  • It’s good for our economy
    • New Hampshire currently spends $4.5 billion out of state for fossil fuels annually – that’s over $3000 per resident 
    • Will create 2.1 million jobs in local communities in the United States over 10 years
    • Will address the $240 billion in annual costs resulting from the environmental & health harms of fossil fuels
    • Learn why more than 3,000 U.S. economists are recommending this solution
  • It creates a healthier environment
    • Currently, 114,000 lives are lost each year due to air pollution
    • 295,000 lives will be saved through 2030 because of improved air quality
  • It is an effective climate change solution
    • Will reduce climate pollution by 40% in 12 years and by 90% in 30 years
    • Will stimulate the growth of New Hampshire’s renewable energy industry and incentivize energy efficiency
