On February 20, 1998, the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Energy ("Department") issued its "Rules Governing the Restructuring of the Electric Industry," 220 C.M.R. 11.00 et seq. The issuance of these rules culminated a three-year process during which the Department, along with the Legislature, other state agencies (most notably, the Attorney General and the Division of Energy Resources), and key industry participants, developed the guidelines that would govern the restructured industry.
