Abstract

Deregulation can create new opportunities for rural America, but it may also introduce new costs. Rural areas are susceptible to changes in the industry that increase electricity costs because such areas are already expensive to serve, and the cooperatives that serve them tend to be small. This article discusses four electricity deregulation issues of importance to rural areas: transmission pricing and investment, retail competition, market power and mergers, and distributed generation.
