Summary
This report presents the results of RAND's analysis of data from the first year of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Southwest bulk electric power market experiment. In successive sections, the authors describe current FERC regulation of transactions among electric utilities; develop a simple conceptual model of the economics of bulk power exchanges; discuss the effects of current regulation on the behavior of utilities in this model; describe the six utilities participating in the FERC experiment; and present efficiency and competitive analyses based on a paradigm of a hypothetical competitive and frictionless market consisting of the six participating utilities. The authors report mixed findings with respect to efficiency, and inconclusive results of the analysis of competitiveness. They suggest that refining the analytic technique and analyzing the second year of experimental data will be beneficial.--Publisher's description
