adding at the end the following new subsection:
    ``(h) State Regulation of Intrastate Sale of Electric Energy at

solely within that State. The Commission shall not have jurisdiction to 
regulate such intrastate sale of electric energy at wholesale to the 
extent the State regulates such sale.''.
