The controversy surrounding the newly deregulated electric industries across the United States has prompted us to review the restructuring in Massachusetts. This project includes an examination of the regulation and restructuring of this industry. Through research, interviews, and policy review, we have recognized the success of these efforts with regards to the elimination of monopolies and the development of renewable energy technologies; however, there is still much progress to be made.
