FRI Joins Engaging 4 MO Series

FRI’s Executive Director, Dr. Michael Sykuta, joined the Engaging 4 MO webinar series to tackle the question, “Who Sets My Utility Bill?” 

The topic was sparked by a social media post complaining about the rates energy companies are allowed to charge “with no concern for the public.” The 30-minute video debunks this notion and dives a little deeper into just how many groups are involved in making sure that these rates serve the greater good (including keeping the lights on at the energy companies themselves).


Presented by the MU Division of Applied Social Sciences, the Engaging 4 MO webinar series offers research-based insights that leaders can apply in their work to benefit and strengthen the state’s agriculture and food system, hospitality sector and communities. Anyone is welcome to participate in Engaging 4 MO webinars.
