The 2017 Annual Markets Report, issued by the Internal Market Monitor at ISO New England, concluded that the region’s wholesale power markets were competitive in 2017. The report notes that the total cost of wholesale electricity markets was $9.1 billion in 2017, which represents an increase of about 20% over 2016’s record-low costs. Energy costs made up $4.5 billion of the total, with both capacity costs and regional network load costs at $2.2 billion in 2017. The costs for reliability services such as operating reserve, regulation, and net commitment period compensation, totaled about $200 million.
