Electricity prices have been increasing in the US and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight – for example, California residential electricity prices went up by 30% from 2006-2012, and are projected to increase by another 47% over the next 15 years, according to the Energy Department figures. As greener energy sources for buildings become more commonplace, it would seem that total electricity cost for these buildings would go down as they use less electricity to power them. However, that has not proven to be the case – it is possibly the federal mandates for cleaner energy through the reducing greenhouse gas and coal emissions that are thought to be driving up electricity prices, as California has one of the most aggressive emission reduction goals and is experiencing the largest electricity price increase.
