Critical Commentary

This article discusses the effects of the utility shutoff moratorium as a policy (an emergency policy) that had no vision for long term pay back. I did not count the number of times the phrase "keeing the lights on" was repeated, but I should have. The article also describes how different utilities across the country handled COVID-19 related shutoffs and assistance to customers.
