  • With more businesses announcing net-zero goals and more consumers seeking out low-carbon energy, clean energy generation has soared in the United States.
  • Customers are also increasingly able to get their power from new sources such as rooftop solar which is increasing reliability and affordability for many ratepayers.
  • Regulators across the country can further accelerate clean energy deployment by opening up competition for power grids.
  • Electricity market competition has been shown to reduce emissions while providing more affordable prices to consumers.

“Two breakthroughs — divesting generation ownership and integrating system operations — are transforming today’s electricity providers while protecting reliability and affordability, utility representatives and system analysts said. But the evolution to a ‘utility of the future’ will only be completed by how utilities respond to still-emerging technologies, changes in policy and new customer demand, they added.”
