Electricity deregulation in Texas , approved by Texas Senate Bill 7 on January 1, , called for the creation of the Electric Utility Restructuring Legislative Oversight Committee to oversee implementation of the bill. The incumbent utility in the area still owns and maintains the local power lines and is the company to call in the event of a power outage and was not subject to deregulation.

An electric utility is a company in the electric power industry often a public utility that engages in electricity generation and distribution of electricity for sale generally in a regulated market. Electric utilities include investor owned , publicly owned , cooperatives , and nationalized entities. They may be engaged in all or only some aspects of the industry. Electricity markets are also considered electric utilities—these entities buy and sell electricity, acting as brokers, but usually do not own or operate generation, transmission, or distribution facilities. Utilities are regulated by local and national authorities.
Electric utilities in the United States operate under a variety of market structures, depending upon the states in which they operate. Some states allow market competition for retail energy supply to electricity customers. This trend is called deregulation or restructuring. Utilities in deregulated markets are prohibited from generation and transmission ownership and are only responsible for distribution, operations, maintenance from the point of grid interconnection to the meter, and billing ratepayers. On the other hand, regulated markets feature vertically integrated utilities that own or control the total flow of electricity from generation to meter. It is also important to be aware of the specific policies that impact solar development in the state in which you operate. Below are resources to help you understand market frameworks and how they may impact your project development.
This new type of market seems like it would be well understood, however there is still some confusion — especially for those homes and businesses that have recently relocated from a regulated energy market to a deregulated one. What exactly does it mean to live in a deregulated market? It is often helpful to compare two concepts in order to see the differences. In regulated markets, the utility holds control over the complete energy vertical. In a deregulated market, the utility controls distribution, maintenance of wires and poles, and invoicing of the consumer for those services. In an electricity deregulated market, companies known as REPs — Retail Electricity Providers — provide the delivery of electricity to the customer the supply of electricity.
Power interruptions of the scale of the North American Blackout of are rare, but they still loom as a possibility. Will the aging infrastructure fail because deregulated monopolies have no financial incentives to upgrade? Is centralized planning becoming subordinate to market forces? Understanding Electric Utilities and De-Regulation, Second Edition provides an updated, non-technical description that sheds light on the nature of the industry and the issues involved in its transition away from a regulated environment. The book begins by broadly surveying the industry, from a regulated utility structure to the major concepts of de-regulation to the history of electricity, the technical aspects, and the business of power.
Его лицо залила мертвенная бледность. Беккер предпринял последнюю попытку: - Мистер Клушар, я хотел бы получить показания этого немца и его спутницы. Вы не скажете, где они могли остановиться.
Ты же сказала, что не колешься. Девушка засмеялась: - Это же чудо-маркер. Я чуть кожу не содрала, пытаясь его стереть. Да и краска вонючая.
Я все. - Довольно, Грег, - тихо сказал Стратмор. Хейл крепче обхватил Сьюзан и шепнул ей на ухо: - Стратмор столкнул его вниз, клянусь .
