On April 3, 2019, ISO New England (ISO-NE) presented to New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) officers and a representative of the New England States Committee on Electricity (NESCOE) and the New England Conference of Public Utility Commissioners (NECPUC) an update to ISO-NE’s 2019 Annual Work Plan.1 In the context of a Work Plan update, ISO-NE announced for the first time its intent to issue a request for proposals (RFP) for transmission solutions to meet reliability needs in the Boston area in 2019. This would be the first competitive solicitation that ISO-NE initiates under the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Order 1000 framework.
