The Current Electricity Rate System is Broken. Rate Reforms Will Make it More Equitable (Opinion) – June 2023
Meredith Fowlie, Energy Institute Faculty Director sits down with the San Diego Union Tribune to comment on rising electricity costs and the development of an “income-graduated” electricity bill system.
“This electricity rate reform would create winners and losers. Most low-income households would see reductions in their electricity bills. Households like mine — higher-income households with rooftop solar — would pay more. Although I don’t love the idea of sending more money to my utility every month, I can see that the current system is broken, and I believe this reform can help fix it.”
