Sacramento Can't Solve Energy Crisis
Co-author of "Reinventing Electric Utilities: Competition,Citizen Action and Clean Power" Peter Asmus advocates allowing the powermarket to stabilize without regulation by state government in thisopinion editorial. By installing time-of-use meters and lettingconsumers respond to market signals, they will become more energyefficient and may resort to more environmentally friendly alternatives,such as solar photovoltaics and fuel cells, Asmus asserts. San Diego Gas& Electric has also lagged behind other state utilities in reducing itsenergy consumption, Asmus states, and consumers need to emphasize theimportance of conservation to SD&E.
