APPA - American Public Power Association    Electric Market Reform Initiative (EMRI) logo

The Electric Market Reform Initiative (EMRI) is a special project of the American Public Power Association. EMRI was formed in response to the failure of the restructuring of the wholesale electricity markets to provide consumers with just and reasonable electric rates and reliable service. Although restructuring was implemented as a means to promote “competition”, spur efficiencies and innovation, and most importantly, lower rates for consumers, the opposite has occurred.

Campaign for Fair Electric Rates

The grassroots advocacy phase of the Electric Market Reform Initiative is called "The Campaign for Fair Electric Rates." Visit their web site at: fairelectricrates.net

The Campaign for Fair Electric Rates represents a wide array of consumer representatives and other stakeholders, who together, encourage the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to thoroughly reexamine the wholesale electricity market structure and determine whether these markets are creating effective competition and producing just and reasonable rates.

The Campaign for Fair Electric Rates works with all stakeholders to educate the media, state legislators, members of Congress and other policymakers on the dysfunction of the current wholesale market structure and the importance of FERC action.

The Campaign for Fair Electric Rates is fighting to protect consumers like you. They want to:

• Educate consumers, businesses, policy makers and Members of Congress about the failure of the deregulation of wholesale electricity markets to provide any benefits to consumers.

• Encourage you to contact your Senators and Representatives to ask that they urge the agency charged with overseeing these markets (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) to take steps now to protect consumers against unjust and unreasonable rates.
