AB 32 Implementation ExpensesAB 32 implementation expenses are approximately $50 million each year. 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 plus or minus any shortfall or surplus from the previous fiscal year) divided by the total statewide emissions covered by the Regulation.
Reported emissions subject to the Regulation (approximately 80 percent of statewide CO2 emissions) were approximately 370 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2008 and have steadily declined to approximately 328 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2013. Historically, the CCC has ranged from $0.121 for emission year 2012, to $0.180 for emission year 2010. For emission year 2013 (Fiscal Year 2015-16), the CCC is $0.157. The following link provides a table showing the historical CCC and transportation fuel fee rates.
