Title: From utility disconnection to universal access

Abstract

By some estimates, 31% of Americans face some sort of “energy insecurity”, but the full extent of the issue and the magnitude of its effect often difficult to quantify. This case study examines disconnection policies in Minnesota and attempts to extrapolate lessons learned for other states and the nation as a whole. The case study concludes with discussion about the relevance of utility shut off to US universal access.
