Independent System Operator New England (ISO-NE)
ISO New England, an independent, not-for-profit corporation, helps promote the health of New England’s economy and protect the well-being of its people by ensuring the constant availability of electricity, today and for future generations. ISO New England meets this obligation in three ways: by reliably operating New England’s 32,000-megawatt bulk power generation and transmission system, by overseeing and ensuring the fair administration of the region’s $10 billion wholesale electricity markets, and by managing comprehensive regional power planning.

ISO/RTO Council
Founded in 2003, the ISO/RTO Council is an industry organization consisting of representatives of North American ISO/RTO’s. The IRC works collaboratively to develop effective processes, tools, and standard methods for improving competitive electricity markets across North America. The IRC’s goal is to balance reliability considerations with market practices, resulting in efficient, robust markets that provide competitive and reliable service to electricity consumers. — ISO/RTO Council

Federal Authorities

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, is an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of electricity, natural gas, and oil. FERC also reviews proposals to build liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals and interstate natural gas pipelines as well as licensing hydropower projects. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 gave FERC additional responsibilities as outlined in FERC's top priorities and updated Strategic Plan.

North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC)
NERC's mission is to ensure that the bulk electric system in North America is reliable, adequate and secure. Since its formation in 1968, NERC has operated successfully as a self-regulatory organization, relying on reciprocity and the mutual self-interest of all those involved in the production, transmission, and distribution of electricity in North America.
