Event Details

The Poverty of Time-Based Pricing
  
Guest Speaker:

MARK TONEY, Ph.D
Executive Director
The Utility Reform Network
 

California represents ground zero in the national policy debate on time-based pricing of electricity.  Time-Based Pricing, characterized by the utility industry as “dynamic pricing”, rests on the theory that residential customers will shift their energy use to nighttime hours if they are subjected to Daytime Pricing (higher time–of–use rates during the day), and Heat Wave Pricing (astronomically high critical peak rates during the hottest days of the year). 

Dr. Toney will focus on the health threats of Daytime Pricing and Heat Wave Pricing, and on weaknesses in the economic theory of the rational actor, while exploring more effective solutions to lowering peak energy use, overall energy consumption, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
