  • Product Description

    This is a 2-page sequel to HKS Case 1226.0. This is one of three business-government case sets, developed in conjunction with the Harvard Electricity Policy Group, which explore the complications arising as the US moves toward a less regulated market in the "wheeling" (transmission and sale) of electricity--a development widely regarded as being no less revolutionary than the break-up of AT&T and the advent of competitive long-distance telephone service. Among the questions which arise: Should large utilities, which had historically been highly regulated, suddenly be forced to compete with low-cost power wholesalers? Who would benefit, who would lose, as a result? Might a long-time power supplier be stripped of its franchise? These cases are provocative both for students of current utility policy and students of general regulatory issues.
