The black out at the Superbowl, put this information on prime time; and hopefully it can bring about a change. Because, the on thing that the weathly hate, is when their side stepping tactics befal them.
Curious consumers, elected officials, and procurers of electricity in both public and the private sector are its audience. The book describes the structure and behavior of an industry that affects us all.
Sufficient history is reviewed to provide a framework for understanding the unusual relationship between, utilities, consumers, corporations, regulatory agencies and outside influences.
The electric utility industry has a far reaching effect yet one of which most of us remain ignorant. No more! Seeber and Moore confirm that monopoly is the worst enemy of good management. They unveil the activities of an industry that has maintained control via the sales pitch of natural monopoly, to (self) regulated monopoly, and through deregulation and hope for a more competitive industry. The book abounds with examples of behavior of an industry that is truly "shocking."
