Policy Integrity Comments to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission on Electricity Rule Changes
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission is amending its rules relating to utilities, electric resource planning, and renewable energy standards. Policy Integrity submitted comments explaining why the Commission should use Social Cost of Greenhouse Gases estimates to monetize the externalities of carbon pollution. Our recommendations include rule revisions and new language that will help include monetized estimates of climate impacts in all relevant decisionmaking. Policy Integrity also submitted comments and reply comments on additional rule revisions, building on our original comments to further describe how the Commission can best express and apply the Social Cost of Greenhouse Gases.
