While the key point of the GGRF is to reduce GHG emissions, it has produced a number of other co-benefits. These include contributing to California’s Green Energy Transition and progress under Senate Bill 350 (SB 350), reducing the human costs of cardiopulmonary disease, and associated economic benefits.

Independently, GGRF projects have lowered $12.3 billion in transportation costs, including as a result of reduced commuting.
