There’s no question that the way Americans produce and consume electricity is upending how utilities and large users are purchasing their current energy needs and planning for the future. 

Joining us to talk about this aspect of the energy transition is Eric DeVito, a principal at Stone, Matthies, Xenopoulos & Brew, a private lawfirm specializing in energy law. We discuss how distributed generation such as rooftop solar and electric vehicles are leading to electricity rate cases and industry debates about pricing; what impact the Trump administration may have on utilities' investment planning; what the long-term prospect is for new coal, natural gas and nuclear generation; and close with Eric's prediction about how long it will be before utilities and public utility commissions will need to grapple with changing their pricing structures.
