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 18      FERC accepts FCM Enhancements.  The FERC accepted the FCM Enhancements without change or 
                condition, effective October 19, 2016, as requested.  In response to NY Commenters' request for a delay in 
                implementation, the FERC was "not persuaded that the potential behavior of New York suppliers provides a 
                sufficient basis to reject ISO-NE’s filing in this case, and deferring the effective date of an otherwise just and 
                reasonable proposal would be inconsistent with the notice provision in section 205 of the FPA."
