Study: New Texas Power Plants Would Cost More than Cutting Energy Waste in Buildings
Texas policymakers could tackle spiking summer and winter power demands while reducing—not raising—overall costs to households and businesses, according to a new report. Incentivizing energy-saving upgrades in homes and commercial buildings and rewarding electric customers for voluntarily shifting some of their energy use to off-peak hours would reduce peak electrical demand and improve grid reliability at a far lower cost than building proposed new, subsidized power plants. Individual households would see average monthly net savings of about $13 on their electric bills.
