Retail Wheeling

Retail Wheeling
  A term for the process of transmitting electricity over transmission lines not owned by the supplier of the electricity to a retail customer of the supplier. With retail wheeling, an electricity consumer can secure their own supply of electricity from a broker or directly from the generating source. The power is then wheeled at a fixed rate, or at a regulated "non-discriminatory" rate set by a utility commission.
  This refers to the ability of end-use customers of any size to purchase electric capacity, energy or both from anyone other than the local electric utility by moving or wheeling such power over the local utility's transmission and/or distribution lines.
  The process of moving electric power from a point of generation across third-party-owned transmission and distribution systems to a retail customer.
