Carbon Point System Operation
Domestic and commercial reduction of energy consumption is converted to point equivalencies; greenhouse gas emissions reduction incentives encourage citizens to reduce consumption voluntarily. The program’s 22,519 participant households reduced CO2 emissions in the period by 1067 metric tons (the equivalent of 380,000 pine trees). Incentives granted totaled US$ 16,920. Start year 2011
