Across the country, clean energy is growing rapidly in states that allow customers to choose their electricity supplier. By providing access to lower-cost sources of energy, this system of “retail choice” grants customers more options and even allows them to generate their own energy on-site. States that allow retail choice are seeing their electricity rates fall, as clean energy grows through voluntary, customer-driven decisions. Importantly, large corporations that want to cut their own electricity bills or demonstrate their commitment to sustainable business practices have been leading the charge for distributed energy generation, marking a refreshing intersection of the conservative and green agendas.
What can lawmakers learn from these developments, and what further policy reforms are needed to unleash the power of competitive forces to deliver cheaper and cleaner energy? Please join the R Street Institute for a panel discussion on these important questions.
