NEW ENGLAND POWER POOL                                                                    


The New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) was established in 1971 as a voluntary association of market participants from the six New England States.  The Participants Committee is the principal governing body of NEPOOL, which considers and acts on all matters affecting the New England region’s wholesale electric power arrangements, either directly or by delegation. The Participants Committee is made up of six energy Sectors in which every NEPOOL Participant, together with its Related Persons, is entitled to have a member and alternate.  The six Sectors are each represented by an Officer that is selected by the Sector on an annual basis. A Committee Chairperson is elected from among those Officers.  The Participants Committee meets monthly in a New England locale, typically in Boston or its environs, and has an annual Summer Meeting, typically at the end of June, at locations throughout the New England States.  

May 26 FERC accepts CIP IROL Cost Recovery Rules.  The FERC accepted the revisions that incorporate
through a new Schedule 17 a mechanism to facilitate the recovery of critical infrastructure protection 
(CIP) costs by facilities that ISO-NE identifies as critical to the derivation of Interconnection Reliability
Operating Limits (IROL).  In accepting the rules, the FERC clarified that recovery of costs incurred by
an IROL Critical Facility Owner during the period in which the subject facility is designated as an
IROL-Critical Facility is only only for those costs incurred on or after the effective date of the relevant
individual FPA section 205 filing.  View the order

Apr 14 NERA Petition.  New England Ratepayers Association (NERA) asks the FERC to assert jurisdiction over energy sales from facilities located on the customer side of the retail meter (rooftop solar and other distributed generation (DG) (i) whenever the DG output exceeds customer demand or (ii) where the
energy from the DG is designed to bypass the customer’s load and therefore is not used to serve
demand behind the customer’s meter, and ensure the output is priced accordingly.
