By: G. Kallis, I. Ray, J. Fulton, J.E. McMahon

In this report, researchers in California evaluate three questions:

  1. Does the public view private and public utilities differently, and if so, does this affect attitudes to conservation?
  2. Do public and private utilities differ in their approaches to conservation?

Based on their survey, the report explains that, overall, California's public utilities appear more proactive and target-oriented in asking their customers to conserve than their private counterparts. Click the link below to read the full report.
