“How can multiple utilities share electricity with each other?”

 

Electricity demand and supply can fluctuate greatly. And sometimes, one utility might become overwhelmed. To prevent this from occurring, a utility can enter into a Power Pool with other utilities.

However, pool agreements can be complex and might lead to some friction between different utilities.
