Power Play (Episode #4004)

KQED Life: Sun, Apr 28, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Guests: Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen Energy Program; Ken Malloy, Executive Director of CRISIS & energy markets. The deregulation of electric utilities became a hot-button issue in the late 90s, with many states allowing companies to operate in the open market. In theory, this move would foster an environment of competitive pricing and better customer service. The reality, however, has allowed for significant price increases, as well as negatively impacting some state's economy and consumer use. This Inside E Street takes a look at consumer advocates who claim residential energy prices have sky -rocketed, as well as the electric company representatives who support this deregulation. So just how broken is the electric utility industry, and what does it mean for you, the consumer?
