Moving Toward Lower Carbon Emissions in New York

February 7, 2019

As the VP of Operations at NYISO, Wes Yeoman’s department will play a large role in overseeing the implementation of carbon pricing, a program the NYISO is examining the stakeholder process.

If approved, carbon pricing will put a value to “the social cost of carbon” in the sale of wholesale power, creating price signals that encourage investment in clean energy resources and cleaner fossil-fuel technology.

“It’s going to be exciting to incorporate those into the electric system,” he says.
