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.

Aug 31  RTO Insider files Complaint against NEPOOL Press Policy.  RTO Insider, a self-described trade 
             publication publisher, filed a complaint against NEPOOL requesting that the FERC find NEPOOL’s press policy to 
             be "unlawful, unjust and unreasonable, unduly discriminatory and contrary to the public interest, and direct 
             NEPOOL to cease and desist from imposing such a ban.  Conversely, if the [FERC] finds that NEPOOL can 
             sustain such a ban as a “private” entity, it should direct that NEPOOL’s special powers, privileges and subsidies 
             be terminated and that an open stakeholder process be used by ISO New England Inc."  View Complaint here.
