How Electricity Markets Work – In the United States, how electricity is bought and sold varies by region of the country. Municipally owned utilities and customer-owned rural cooperatives support some communities, but most customers are served by investor-owned electric utilities and each is regulated differently. Learn how retail and wholesale electricity prices are set, how power is procured, how the markets are regulated, and implications for the future given the greening and modernization of the electricity sector.
