Deregulating Electric Utilities
Many states are considering deregulating their electric utilities. California has already done so, and Ohio has placed legislation before both the Senate (SB 237) and the House (HB 732). Although the two Ohio bills differ, both are designed to subject the pricing and use of electricity to the market rather than to local regulatory agencies.
