Description
The introduction of a wholesale electricity market in California on 1 April 1998 was expected to deliver lower electricity prices to Californian consumers while maintaining adequate reliability of supply. In contrast, wholesale electricity prices increased more than tenfold during 2000. Australia, like California, has also opened its electricity supply to market forces. The 'national electricity market' in Australia has not encountered problems of the magnitude of those in California
