Brown on Renewable Portfolio Standards

External News Details

“Many southern states oppose renewable portfolio standards because they believe their renewable resources are insufficient,” according to a working paper written by Marilyn Brown, professor in the School of Public Policy (SPP); Youngsun Baek, SPP doctoral candidate; Yu Wang, SPP doctoral candidate; and Cullen Morris of Duke University. "Renewable portfolio standards require utilities to use renewable energy as the source of a certain percentage of their electricity production and, therefore, is an impetus for using more renewable energy overall."
