I did a little research into the structure of the east coast power grid. It has a long history and is very complicated. The double counting issue was so entangled that I didn't have much confidence in my understanding of it. I think the whole power grid is evolving and will soon be impacted by the ideas of less centralized organization. Jeremy Rifkin gives a lecture at Google about how this will happen, it can be seen on You Tube along with his Empathic Civilisation video. Basically, it models the power grid being used like the internet with solar installations both commercial and residential feeding surplus power back to a smart grid that will be the next revolution in energy.
