Achieving a lower-carbon economy requires effective, efficient solutions that do not unduly burden consumers or impede the reliability of our power grid, while allowing for continued competition and innovation. When it comes to decarbonizing the power sector, policies that focus on reducing emissions while ensuring reliable and least-cost solutions will yield the most effective results to meet the growing demand for electricity. A national, economy-wide carbon price will send the right signals to reduce emissions while helping to keep electricity affordable, reliable and innovative.
