WRVO – In September 2008, the first U.S. carbon auctions were launched in Northeastern and MidAtlantic states. Companies that operate big power plants in the region are required to buy one credit for every ton of greenhouse gases they release. So far, the auctions, part of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, or R.G.G.I., have raised more than $770 million. That money is supposed to be set aside for environment and conservation projects, but last year three states raided the fund.
