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 Chairman 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.  

Mar 27    Judge Glazer issues Initial Decision in the Base ROE Complaint IV (2016) Proceeding (EL16-64).
The Initial Decision concluded that the currently-filed base ROE (10.57 %, which may reach a maximum ROE
               of 11.74 % with incentive adders) is not unjust and unreasonable, and hence is not unlawful under section 
               206 of the Federal Power Act. The Base ROE IV Initial Decision found that “Neither the Complainants nor 
               Staff has met their burden to produce a properly-specified [Discounted Cash Flow (“DCF”)] analysis that 
               demonstrates the [TOs’] existing base ROE is unjust and unreasonable.”  View Initial Decision here.
