California’s Energy Policy Drives Up Utility Bills

Politico reports that Californians are displeased with their lawmakers as utility bills have skyrocketed to as much as 127 percent over the last decade due to the implementation of some of the most stringent energy policies in the nation. Now, other Democratic-led states who are pushing similar policies are reportedly questioning how to navigate the future to avoid raising utility costs.

Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition and former senior advisor to U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman:

“California residents are feeling the consequences of the state’s extreme energy policies, which are forcing a rapid transition away from traditional energy sources. Californians’ utility bills have more than doubled since the state passed sweeping energy regulations, leading to increased costs across all sectors that disproportionately impact low income residents. State policymakers should embrace sound energy policies that prioritize an all of above approach to ensure energy remains reliable and affordable for all Californians.”
