This whitepaper, written as part of America’s Power Plan, discusses the growth of distributed generation by end-use consumers and how this threatens traditional utility business structures. It argues that customers and utilities must forge new relationships that account for these changing conditions. To achieve a renewable electricity future, policy will need to be reformed so that centralized and distributed resources both play a role and compete on a level playing field. The paper states that this future relationship will depend primarily on financial structures and how both types of electricity services are priced to reflect their true values.
