A proposed carbon tax could cost your family $21,000


Go to to make your voice heard

We support efforts to address climate change by reducing carbon emissions. But we are very worried about questionable steps NY State is considering and how they will impact our customers. One example is a new proposed carbon tax that could cost a typical homeowner $21,000 over 10 years!

Did you know?

In 2019, Albany passed the Climate Leadership and Protection Act, which requires radical reductions in carbon emissions. How this would happen was NOT addressed.

We believe the path to realistic carbon reduction must include smarter use and improvements of existing fuels and infrastructure. Unfortunately, the state is narrowly focusing on “electrifying everything.”

From what we can see, proposed actions could dramatically raise all energy prices, add onerous taxes and equipment surcharges, force people to abandon the heating systems they like, disregard climate improvements that could be made without “electrifying everything,” and overload an already-fragile electric grid.

One example of the above is a new carbon tax which was proposed this past legislative session could cost the average homeowner nearly $21,000! It is sure to be brought up again when the legislature resumes.

Unless you learn more and make your voice heard, things could spin out of control quickly.  

We, and others in the liquid fuels industry, continue to offer solutions that immediately reduce every customer’s carbon footprint without doing anything as potentially costly, inequitable and insufficient as that which is coming out of Albany—no matter how well-intentioned their plan.

We support sensible climate improvement. We just don’t support throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
