The U.S. electricity sector encompasses the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity. Electric utilities are the regulated entities that own and manage many of the sector assets and their operations as well as the sale of electricity to end users. This chapter provides an overview of the U.S. electricity system and introduces five State Energy and Environment Guide to Action chapters that describe some of the key polices states use to regulate the utility sector and that can be used to promote environmental and equity benefits.
