(See also "Exempt Wholesale Generator" and "Distributed Generation.")
Specifically, EPACT provides for the creation of entities, called "exempt wholesale generators" (EWGs), that can generate and sell electricity at wholesale without being regulated as utilities under PUHCA.
In contrast to PURPA, EPAct permits an unprecedented, broad class of nonutility power generators called exempt wholesale generators (EWGs) to sell electricity in the wholesale market.(54) EWGs are exempt from the strict operating and efficiency requirements of PURPA as well as any corporate structure requirements of earlier legislation.(55) In effect, EPAct allows almost any electricity generator to qualify as an EWG.(56) Furthermore, EPAct does not require utilities to purchase power from EWGs at avoided costs.(57) Therefore, EWGs can compete with utility companies' own generators and sell their power at market price.(58) As expected, the effect of relaxing the barriers to entry into the wholesale market is an increase in the number of wholesale suppliers.(59)
Unregulated exempt wholesale generators, power marketers, and power brokers now compete with electric utilities for bulk power sales.
First, EPAct permitted the formation of Exempt Wholesale Generators (EWGs) that are not subject to certain provisions of the Public Utility Holding Co.
The law also allows utilities to provide electricity to the wholesale market through "exempt wholesale generators," which are free of many federal utility regulations.
It effectively decoupled generation from transmission and distribution and created a new category of Exempt Wholesale Generators (EWG).
