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.

May 4     Supreme Court grants certiorari in FERC v. EPSA case.  The petitions for writs of certiorari were granted
               limited to the following Questions: 1) Whether the FERC reasonably concluded that it has authority under the 
               Federal Power Act to regulate the rules used by operators of wholesale electricity markets to pay for 
               reductions in electricity consumption and to recoup those payments through adjustments to wholesale rates. 
               2) Whether the Court of Appeals erred in holding that the rule issued by the FERC is arbitrary and capricious. 
               The cases are consolidated and a total of one hour is allotted for oral argument.  The NRG motion for leave to 
               file a brief as amicus curiae was also granted. 
 (Justice Alito took no part in the consideration or decision of 
               this motion and these petitions).
