Prajna will create an analysis of the potential costs of offsetting 5% to 15% of the 1990 baseline emissions and another analysis of the estimated abatement cost of reducing statewide GHG emissions beyond the 85% and 89% emissions reductions. With these two analyses, we can roughly compare the cost trade-offs of achieving Net Zero emissions with mostly in-state carbon sequestration, versus heavily relying on out-of-state NWL and technology-based carbon sequestration.
