About ISO New England
ISO New England is the independent, not-for-profit company authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to perform three critical, complex, interconnected roles for New England:
- Grid operation—Every minute of every day, we coordinate and direct the flow of electricity over the region's high-voltage transmission system.
- Market administration—We design, run, and oversee the billion-dollar markets where wholesale electricity is bought and sold.
- Power system planning —We do the studies, analyses, and planning to make sure New England's electricity needs will be met over the next 10 years.
Together, these three responsibilities help protect the health of the region’s economy and the well-being of its people by ensuring the constant availability of competitively-priced wholesale electricity—today and for future generations. Learn more.
