The carbon levy is being introduced by the Alberta Government under The Climate Leadership Plan to reduce carbon emissions and will be in effect January 1, 2017.
An economy-wide price on carbon is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. The carbon levy will be applied to purchases of heating and transportation fuels such as diesel, gasoline, natural gas and propane.
The carbon levy will apply to purchases of all fossil fuels that produce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when combusted. This includes fuels used for transportation and heating purposes. The carbon levy will not apply directly to consumer purchases of electricity.
The carbon price of $20 per tonne, effective January 1, 2017, will be applied to individual fuels based on the amount of GHG emissions released when the fuel is combusted. This price will rise to $30 per tonne on January 1, 2018.
