As the composition and dynamics of the electric grid changes, regulations have failed to keep pace with changes.

During that time, natural gas and renewable energy emerged as viable constituents of Pennsylvania's electric grid. (Natural gas accounts for a majority of electricity supplied to Pennsylvania and renewable energy is responsible for 4.5%). “It’s very helpful, except that none of what has occurred in the last 35 years is included” was the familiar grievance," wrote authors of the original rate handbook, when it was finally revised last year.
