Join us for a lively discussion concerning the nation’s ability and methods to pay for renewable energy through increased electricity rates. Using California as a case study, the panel will lay out cost forecasts for compliance with California’s aggressive RPS standard. Having grounded the conversation in dollar figures, we will then discuss various policies to achieve the RPS goals. We will also discuss how regulators balance the RPS and consumers’ ability to pay higher rates.
Focusing on both the policy and the economics of ratemaking, our discussion will address topics such as:
Is it feasible for California to get 33% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020?
What role can energy efficiency play in keeping costs down?
What obstacles do public utility commissions face in the build out of renewable energy?
What role will feed in tariffs play?
What will be the scope of rate increases nationally and when will they start impacting rates?
The presentation will close with a robust question and answer session, in which participants are encouraged to engage the panel speakers.
