Without wheeling, small utilities located in the middle of private utility service areas would have to generate their own power, buy it from their competitor, or build expensive transmission lines to an outside source.» —“After Long, Hard Lobbying Effort: Senate Passes Hydropower Bill Giving Edge to Private Utilities” by Joseph A. Davis Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report Apr. 19, 1986. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
