New England is expected to have the resources needed to meet consumer demand for electricity this summer, though tight supply margins could develop if forecasted peak system conditions occur. If this happens, ISO New England will take steps to manage New England’s electricity supply and demand in real time and maintain power system reliability. Under normal weather conditions of 90 degrees Fahrenheit (F), electricity resources should be sufficient to meet consumer demand this summer, with a forecasted peak of 26,482 MW megawatts (MW). Extreme weather of 94°F could push up electricity demand to 28,865 MW. View the press release.
