AB 32 Cost of Implementation Funding

Common Carbon Cost

Each fiscal year’s invoice is based on that year’s Common Carbon Cost (CCC) which is calculated as the total required revenue (implementation expenses and adjustments, plus any shortfall or minus any surplus in actual revenue collected during the previous fiscal year) divided by the total statewide emissions covered by the Regulation. The CCC reflects the cost of implementation per unit of emissions ($ / metric tons).

The total emissions subject to the Regulation, expressed in metric tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) were approximately 337 million MT CO2e for reporting year 2017, reflected in invoices sent in July 2019.

The following link provides tables showing the historical CCC and transportation fuel fee rates.
