The EPA’s COBRA tool allows local governments to understand the potential for clean energy to enhance air quality, health, and social well being; design program options that maximize benefits; build support for clean energy investments based on benefits; narrow policy options to those that should be evaluated using more sophisticated air quality models; present information about localized  benefits; and support a balanced decision-making process that considers costs and benefits of policy options.
