Electricity Market Distortions Due to Inconsistent Air Quality Regulations
This Synapse report assessed the ways SO2 allowances, NOX allowances, and New Source Review offset requirements can provide incumbent electric companies with unfair advantages in a competitive electricity market. The report further evaluated how these requirements affected the electricity market at the time of the power plant divestiture, mergers of electric companies, or the construction of new power plants. Project completed in 1999.
