The Private Provision of Public Goods: Tests of a Provision Point Mechanism for Funding Green Power Programs

This paper utilizes field and laboratory experiments to test the use of a provision point mechanism to finance renewable energy programs, commonly known as green pricing programs. In contrast to most green pricing programs, relatively high participation is found in the field, while laboratory results suggest that demand revelation is achieved by the mechanism in a single shot environment with a large group of potential participants.
