Radioactivity explores utility regulation and green energy in Florida

Share

Today on Radioactivity talks about utility regulation and green energy- are state regulators giving electric utility companies what they need or are regulators too soft on utility companies?

Electric utility companies are big news in Florida. With rate increases, advanced cost recovery fees, and big changes in energy conservation programs- the electric utilities have become a major issue in this year’s governor’s race.

Today’s show features several guests including free market economist Wayne Winegarden who says Florida does a good job when it comes to regulating energy companies. Winegarden works for the Pacific Research Institute. Ivan Penn who covers electric utility companies for the Tampa Bay Times, W. Scott McIntyre of Solar Energy Management and State Representative Dwight Dudley.
