Winter 2016/2017 recap: Power system performs well during generally mild weather

New England’s power system performed well during winter 2016/2017, though colder temperatures in December led to higher natural gas and wholesale electric prices compared to the prices seen during the record-setting warm weather of winter 2015/2016.

While January and February were milder than normal, temperatures in December 2016 averaged 32.4°F, more than 10°F colder than the previous December. Over the course of the winter New Englanders used 30,933 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity, slightly less than the 31,328 GWh used during the previous winter (which, as a leap year, included one extra day in February), but significantly less than the 33,709 GWh used during the much colder 2014/2015 winter, according to ISO New England data.
