The purpose of the Failure to Act report series by American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is to provide an objective analysis of the economic implications for the United States of its continued underinvestment in infrastructure. The reports in the series assess the implications of present trends in infrastructure investment for the productivity of industries, national competitiveness, and the costs for households. The focus of this report is on electricity, including generation, transmission, and the distribution infrastructure that provides electricity to our nation’s homes and businesses. Most elements of electricity infrastructure are privately owned and publicly regulated utilities.
