Regulation Is to Blame for Our Grid Reliability Woes

Devin Hartman writes in RealClearEnergy that regulation is to blame for our grid reliability.

The C3 Take
  • As the hot summer months approach, the reliability of our electric grid will be a high priority.
  • While climate change and extreme weather certainly impacts reliability, a poor regulatory structure is what the primary catalyst for grid instability.
  • Regulators at the state level can address the issue by abolishing monopoly utilities and modernizing regulations to increase competition.

“Complacency is not an option. The regulatory status quo threatens reliability, the clean transition and energy affordability. Swapping monopolies for markets and driving consensus on regulatory modernization is the clear path to a brighter energy future.”
