The NOx Budget Trading Program (NBP), is a market-based cap and trade program created to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from power plants and other large combustion sources in the eastern United States. NOx is a prime ingredient in the formation of ground-level ozone (smog). This report finds that, in states that participated during the first year of the program, ozone season (May through September) NOx emissions from power plants and other large combustion sources were reduced by more than 30 percent from 2002 levels. These emission reductions occurred despite an increase in heat input (a measure of power generation) at affected sources. Emissions have also been reduced by 70 percent from 1990 levels due to the combination of the NBP and other NOx control programs. In 2003, of the total affected population of approximately 1,000 units, all but 7 were in compliance.
