Permit Trading

Emerging environmentalists work in groups and pretend that each is a power company generating electricity for a community. They consider the costs of building a renewable electricity generator that will increasingly replace generating electricity via the original conventional methods. A worksheet guides them through the exercise. Play money, city permits, and power plant deeds are included for you to print out. This is a relevant lesson for demonstrating market-oriented regulation and reduction of toxic emissions.
