Author Steven Ferrey highlights the importance of electric energy rules and legal restrictions that are replacing the traditional utility environment. Rather than focus on the trends of deregulation or concentrate on a particular area of electric energy, this book deals with transcendent issues, long-term rules, and structure of the electric industry. Ferry explains the three primary areas of change: Technology - the hardware' of the industry Regulations at the federal level Changes at the retail level. No other book summarizes the regulatory changes and new rules now governing the electric marketplace (post-deregulation) in one volume. Ferry designed The New Rules to explain the regulations of the new electric marketplace to everyone from power business professionals to members of the academic sector.
