Podcast #114: Will Americans use renewable energy sources if it is voluntarily?

Supports of clean energy want to see alternatives to oil and coal take the lead in America, but don’t often consider the costs to consumers.

Josh Smith is a research manager with the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. He joins the podcast today to talk about Renewal Portfolio Standards (RPS) and how these well-intentioned policies for state energy usage can have a lopsided impact on those with the fewest resources.
