The panel will explore the risks and rewards associated with a renewable energy future and attempt to answer the question who pays and who benefits? Is there an energy consumer fairness issue that needs to be addressed? What can utilities do to reduce and/or eliminate volatility of energy supply and pricing? Is rate stabilization a worthy goal?
