Response to ALEC Anti-Renewables Reports

Civil Society Institute
Project completed March 2013.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) released a series of reports claiming to show that state and federal policies promoting renewable energy are extremely expensive, job-killing regulations. At the request of the Civil Society Institute (CSI), Synapse prepared a brief critique of the ALEC studies, identifying fundamental flaws in both their energy analysis and their economic modeling.
