Billions of dollars of delinquent power bills — Who will pay?

Since the pandemic, many states have implemented a moratorium on disconnecting utilities. That’s kept the lights on and water running for millions of people unable to pay their utility bills.

Public Utility Research Center Director of Energy Studies Dr. Ted Kury addresses this question on Top of Mind with Julie Rose.
