The most important election of 2019

Voting for the Bob Williams Award for the Most Influential Research by any U.S. policy organization has been re-opened! The Center is honored to have been nominated for our energy report, Doubling Down on Failure. With the voting period extended, we need your help to win. If you have not already done so, please vote for American Experiment here. Our category, Most Influential Research, is listed first. Voting will close again this Friday, August 23. Make sure to share our nomination with your friends and family and encourage them to vote!

Doubling Down on Failure illustrated the consequences of renewable energy mandates. A 50 percent renewable energy standard in Minnesota would cost $80.2 billion, raise electricity rates by 40 percent, and unemploy 21,000 Minnesotans all to impact global warming by only 0.0006 °C. Since the paper’s release, we have worked with other states to replicate our methodology in their locales.

Want to learn more about Doubling Down on Failure? If you are in the Willmar area, you can join Isaac Orr, author of Doubling Down on Failure, for breakfast next Tuesday, August 27. More information here.
