ABSTRACT
Reports on the United States Supreme's decision to let stand a Pennsylvania court's ruling which allows an investor-owned utility in the state to recover most of its stranded investments by assessing a fee on customers' bills. Implications for municipal electric utilities that plan to open up for retail competition but have above-market rates because of expensive investments.
