Anyone with an interest in the debate over carbon pricing in wholesale electricity markets should invest some time reading the posted comments available at this link, in preparation for the FERC Technical Conference scheduled for 9/30/2020 - see link for details. I've made my position known on this: Any increase in electricity costs, without application to other fossil fuel uses, such as transportation, heating and manufacturing will unduly inflict higher costs for electrification and could inhibit electrification of these other segments. Now is not the time to unfairly disadvantage and discourage electricity use by raising prices - electricity must the the obvious economic choice, if we are to have any real progress addressing climate change.
