Ralph Nader Group Says California's 'Green Electricity' Is a Hoax on Consumers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON -- Electricity being sold as environmentally friendly in
California's newly competitive power market ''is largely a hoax on
consumers,'' an enviromental-consumer group charged Thursday.
Public Citizen, which was founded by consumer activist Ralph Nader, said
that while customers pay an average of $10 extra per month to get so-called
''green electricity,'' the purchases do little to enhance the environment.
''The 'green' is going mostly into the pockets of marketers,'' said Joan
Claybrook, the organization's president.
The criticism brought a sharp response from California utility officials,
as well as some other environmentalists and renewable-energy advocates who
said Public Citizen's analysis was flawed.
''The green markets are, in fact, working and working well. Public Citizen
is completely out of touch,'' said Jan Smutny-Jones, director of a
coalition of renewable energy producers.
