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.

prohibiting ISO-NE from (i) implementing an unfiled revision to ISO-NE planning procedure No. 10 (PP-10)
that Exelon asserts would significantly affect the rates, terms and conditions of jurisdictional services by
dramatically changing the way in which ISO-NE conducts its annual transmission security review of
capacity auction retirement bids and the Network Model upon which the capacity auction is based, and
(ii) violating the requirements of the ISO-NE Tariff for Order 1000 competitive transmission procurements.
