Carolinas Consider Future of Energy Management
E&E News reported this week that South Carolina lawmakers have been debating a move away from traditionally structured regulated electric companies toward formation of organized energy markets. Now, North Carolina legislators are beginning to ask similar questions as Duke Energy Corporation proposes a multiyear rate plan to pay for major projects including grid upgrades.
Early discussions are just beginning in North Carolina about creating a federally regulated regional transmission organization (RTO), that would operate an electric grid across multiple states.
