Director Karl Rabago comments on utility companies
New energy sources, including solar power, may require different business models to make these systems viable on a larger scale. A recent article posted to utilitydive.com, an industry newsletter, asks whether it will be the engineers who will modify the existing models. The article quotes Karl R. Rabago, the new director of the Pace Energy and Climate Center.
“Many utilities have put regulators in the untenable position of opposing one of the most popular energy technologies,” Rabago is quoted as saying, “and commissioners are frustrated with utilities for not coming up with win-win solutions.”
