Wheeling service

Gao, Bingtuan. "Power Transmission Scheduling for Generators in a Deregulated Environment Based on a Game-Theoretic Approach."

the transfer of electrical power through transmission and distribution lines from one utility's service area to another's. Wheeling can occur between two adjacent utilities, or between utilities in different states. Under existing law, qualifying facilities may only transmit their output to their local utility.

Pros

 "Wheeling" allows utility areas with too much supply to transmit excess power to other utilities with too much demand. 

Cons

It can be problematic to determine the value of transmitted power. Also it is argued that access to too many parties can reduce reliability.
