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.

Jun 30    CT PURA announces intention to deny Iberdrola/UIL Holdings merger.  In its proposed final decision,
              the CT PURA states that the proposed transaction, whereby UIL Holdings Corp. would become an indirect,
              wholly-owned subsidiary of Iberdrola, S.A, "as structured, does not suffice to show that the post-merger 
              control of the public service companies will be suitable and responsible from financial and managerial 
              standpoints. Additionally, the Application is not in the public interest because it is not designed to produce 
              short or long-term, quantifiable, measurable and enforceable benefits to the public service companies, their 
              customers or the State [of Connecticut]."  View draft decision here.
