The southeast is experiencing dramatic changes in its electricity generation and transmission industries. Much of this change threatens the affordability and reliability of electricity for energy consumers and utility customers. But opportunities are still available with the right policies in place.
The southeast is faced with new changes to the regions electricity generation portfolio mandated in the Clean Power Plan, roadblocks to increased electricity generation from clean sources of power like nuclear, and opportunities in offshore wind and oil and natural gas exploration. CEA brings together diverse groups of consumers, businesses and policy makers to navigate the uncertainty and work to enact policies that expand choice and opportunity, grow the region’s economy, create new jobs, and reduce energy costs for consumers.
