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.

Oct 17  FERC institutes Section 206 proceeding (ER19-90) to consider how the exemption for immediate 

             need reliability projects is being implemented by ISO-NE.   ISO-NE was directed to respond to questions
            outlined by the FERC in the order and to submit those responses no later than 60 days after the publication of
            notice in the
Federal Register.  The FERC is "concerned that [ISO-NE] may be implementing the exemption in a
            manner that is inconsistent with or more expansive than what the FERC directed, and therefore may be unjust and
            unreasonable, unduly preferential and discriminatory.  ISO-NE’s response is due on or before December 16, 2019.
