Title: Beyond retail wheeling: Competitive sourcing of retail electric power

Abstract

The search for greater efficiency in the vital electricity industry, represented by the Energy Policy Act, state regulation and industry restructuring of the past two decades, is but an intermediate step. The system will not be adequately competitive or low cost until a competitive choice of suppliers is available to all customers that pay electricity bills. It is no secret that industrial electricity end-users are seeking the option of retail wheeling as a replacement or supplement to service from their traditional host utility. However, retail wheeling is not a very good term for what in fact industrial end-users want. Their real motive is to be able to competitively source their power requirements in workably competitive electricity markets. They competitively source other input commodities and services for their production processes - why not electricity?
