Event Details

The price of electricity to U.S. households varies widely across regions and tends to be most expensive in areas where the incremental cost of providing additional supply (including GHG and pollution emissions) is actually lowest. High and rising prices undermine efforts to decarbonize transportation and buildings through electrification. In this live webinar, Severin Borenstein, Professor of the Graduate School in the Economic Analysis and Policy Group at the Haas School of Business, will examine alternative ways of recovering the costs of the electricity system that are more efficient and more equitable, including income-based monthly fixed charges on electricity bills and moving appropriate costs to government budgets.
