Op-Eds

The Case Against Federal Intervention in the Electricity Market

In an op-ed featured in the Washington Examiner, AAF’s Director of Energy Policy, Philip Rossetti explains why the Trump Administration should avoid unnecessarily intervening in electricity markets. See excerpt below:

“This proposal amounts to a massive government intervention in the electricity market. Many will contend that the U.S. electricity market is not free, and this point certainly is correct. Yet, there is a market, and the forces, such as they are, make such an intervention unnecessary. The market rewards reliability, and if it was true that coal and nuclear could satisfy a niche for reliability, then they would not need an intervention to remain competitive.”
