Energy can be tough to understand. When we flip a light switch, we know the lights should come on. But we might not know where that power came from – or why it costs what it costs.
In New England, much of those costs are controlled by a select group of stakeholders – called the New England Power Pool, or NEPOOL.
NEPOOL is now facing criticism for a lack of transparency, and for decisions that could be raising the already high cost of energy in the region.
