Power Plants are highly regulated, given the importance of making electricity widely accessible and affordable. Power Plants must obtain approval for their rates from a state utility regulatory agency. Regulators conduct complex analyses of the cost of operations and other financial considerations of Power Plants when reviewing rate requests.
Public Power Authorities and Districts have their own Board of Directors or Commissioners who are responsible for the policy and operations of the Power Plant. Publicly owned Power Plants are usually subject to the same regulations as private companies that own Power Plants.
An electrical grid is an extensive network of power lines, substations, transformers, and related equipment that handles the transmission and distribution of electricity from a Power Plant to all residential, commercial, and industrial customers.
