“Our background in telecommunications governed our thinking on issue of market and utility power. We saw how in telecommunications, incumbent entities used their power to thwart competition. Our telecommunications experience guided our determination to require unbundling in electricity. Natural gas pipeline unbundling helped explain how to implement competition, and telecommunications was the example of why to do it.”
— Pat Wood, former Chair of the Public Utility Commission of Texas and former member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
