The South could pay less for its electricity in 20 years than is
currently projected if strong public policies are enacted to spur
renewable energy production and use, according to a report released
today by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Duke
University. The 190-page report, “Renewable Energy in the South,” builds
on a short policy brief released last summer and provides an in-depth
assessment of the scope of renewable energy resources in the South and
their economic impacts on electricity rates and utility bills in the
energy can help meet growing electricity demand and minimize pollution in the southern
United States, but progress to adopt renewable energy strategies has been
hindered by a number of myths, according to a new study by Georgia Tech and
Duke University researchers.
