PG&E Purchases Carbon Offsets From ODS Destruction

PG&E’s ClimateSmart program will purchase carbon offsets generated by the destruction of ozone-depleting substances (ODS), according to PG&E.

Through a new contract, Environmental Credit Corp. will collaborate with Appliance Recycling Centers of America Inc. (ARCI) to collect and destroy more than 38,000 pounds of ODS from California sources including disposed refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and bulk chillers.

This destruction will be a one-time, permanent and irreversible process, with the ultimate result being the generation of carbon offsets that are bought by PG&E customers through the ClimateSmart program.

The program allows PG&E customers to buy credits to balance out greenhouse gas emissions associated with their energy use.

The Climate Action Reserve, a national offsets program, adopted ODS project protocols in February.

The ClimateSmart program is also road-testing other Climate Action Reserve carbon offset protocols through eight different projects across California. Collectively these projects will capture or eliminate more than 1.3 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, according to PG&E.
