ISO New England recently hosted House members of the Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy for a meeting and tour at its headquarters in Holyoke.

During the meeting, ISO staff provided the state representatives an overview of the ISO’s three critical roles in the region: operating the New England grid, administering the wholesale electricity markets, and planning the bulk power system. Members of the ISO’s System Planning, System Operations, and External Affairs teams discussed the work underway to achieve a reliable, cost-effective grid that is powered by clean energy.

The ISO’s External Affairs department maintains continuous communication with state regulators, policymakers, and other government stakeholders in the six New England states, to provide information on the wholesale electricity markets and the bulk power system.
