The article discusses the efforts of U.S. authorities to initiate deregulation in the utility sector. It says that the deregulation aims to promote cheaper, market driven utility rates but some U.S. states fail to adopt this approach since the U.S. Congress fails to outline the steps to proceed with this proposal. The author also explores the implications of the complexity theory for how the U.S. approaches power engineering.
