Summary

The electricity industry, one of the largest and most vital sectors of the U.S. economy, has changed dramatically in recent years. After being heavily regulated for more than a century by authorities at all levels, deregulation is taking center stage, allowing for enormous efficiency gains. Competition and the Future of Electricity explores the difficult questions surrounding deregulation and urges Americans to continue the transition to a market-based model.
