US unions, public interest groups and regulators question liberalisation: TAKE BACK THE POWER

Different from Europe, liberalisation of electricity is an issue for the states in the US. Some states have liberalised, many have not. The extend of liberalisation is also different from state to state. And also in the US deregulation is failing workers and citizens. US trade unions and a broad coalition of citizen groups have organised themselves in a coalition TAKE BACK THE POWER. They demonstrate what liberalisation is doing and how it is hurting citizens and communities. Information is available on price developments in the liberalised market which indicates that prices go up in liberalised markets.
