US Electricity Billing Regulations

I dug up a gem on the web, and like the nice person I am, decided to share it with all of you. It is a table comparing how different states in the USA have regulated metering and billing for retail electricity companies. You will see that there is quite a disparity of approaches and that many states are omitted because they have no regulation. This kind of data is handy for understanding benchmarks for bill performance, accuracy and error across comparable industries. Click on the image to see the full-size version.

For those really interested, the table is extracted from an independent March 2007 report on how Michigan’s electricity service quality regulations, as applied to the Detroit Edison company, have fared in comparison to original expectations. See here for the full report.
