Abstract

As competition in the supply and delivery of electricity has been introduced in the United States, states have sought to ensure the continuation of "public benefits" programs traditionally administered or funded by electric utilities. One of the most popular policy mechanisms for ensuring such continued support has been the system-benefits charge (SBC). This paper summarizes the status and performance of fourteen state renewable energy funds supported by system-benefits charges, and is based on a more detailed recent LBNL report that can be downloaded from the web at http://eetd.lbl.gov/ea/EMS/EMS_pubs.html#RE.
