Annual CLG report highlights 2019 activities and other consumer-related, wholesale electricity industry topics
ISO New England and the Consumer Liaison Group (CLG) Coordinating Committee recently issued the 2019 report of the Consumer Liaison Group. The annual report provides an analysis of wholesale costs and retail rates in the six New England states as well as historical data regarding the region’s wholesale electricity costs. The report also features summaries of the 2019 quarterly meetings, highlights of ISO New England’s activities and initiatives, and a message from the CLG Coordinating Committee members regarding their priorities in the coming year.
The 2019 report is the tenth annual report of the CLG, which the ISO and regional electricity market stakeholders created in 2009 to facilitate the consideration of consumer interests in determining the needs and solutions for the region’s power system. The CLG is open to the public. Participants generally include consumers and consumer representatives (including state consumer and ratepayer advocates), state business and industry associations, chambers of commerce, individual businesses, trade groups, nonprofit organizations, and other end users. The CLG meets quarterly, and each meeting addresses various regional electricity and consumer issues. About 75 to 100 participants attend each meeting, both in person and via teleconference.
