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.  

Oct 20        NEPOOL files comments in DOE NOPR Proceeding.  NEPOOL's comments urge the FERC in any 
                  action taken (1) to provide adequate time and process for meaningful stakeholder consideration and input 
                  before issuing any final rule; (2) to allow sufficient flexibility, both procedurally and substantively, for each 
                  region with an organized market to address the concerns raised in the DOE NOPR with reference to the 
                  specific and unique circumstances of that region; and (3) to ensure adequate time for compliance with any 
                  final rule so that New England can follow its FERC-approved stakeholder process in designing and finalizing 
                  any such compliance.  View comments here.
