The Council on Economic Priorities, a nonprofit research group, seeks factual information on corporate responsibility in the areas of environmental quality, employment, military production, political influence, and foreign activities. The Price of Power is the Council's second in-depth study in the environmental area. The first study, Paper Profits: Pollution in the Pulp and Paper Industry, was published by The MIT Press in December 1972. This year-long independent investigation of 15 private power companies, which generate some 25 percent of the nation's power, reveals that these utilities have lagged far behind in installing available equipment that would keep them from polluting the environment. According to Barry Commoner, the next decade will see the electric utilities industry in the front lines on the environmental battleground.
