Growth Energy Opposes Proposed CARB LCFS


Growth Energy has filed comments outlining its opposition to the proposed amendments by California’s Air Resources Board to the California Low Carbon Fuels Standard Regulation and the Proposed Regulation on the Commercialization of Alternative Diesel Fuels. Growth Energy believes each regulation is unnecessary to achieve the environmental benefits sought by the California Legislature in the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

If adopted – Growth Energy General Counsel David Bearden says the current LCFS proposal will have a devastating impact on Growth Energy’s members – who will be forced to exit California’s alternative fuels market. Bearden says such an outcome will likely trigger the cost-containment caps in the proposed regulation and any claimed benefits of the LCFS program will be compromised or lost.
