Public Citizen's Slocum discusses FERC conference on electricity restructuring

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is set to hold a daylong conference this week to discuss competition issues relating to utility companies. Have there been any successes over the past 10 years with the current competition structure? What should be done to improve the way electric markets function? During today's OnPoint, Tyson Slocum, Director of Public Citizen's Energy Program addresses these issues and talks about why he believes the implementation of smart meters will only provide a temporary solution to a much larger problem.
