State regulators and utilities in New England are announcing new retail electricity rates that will take effect this fall and in early 2015. These rates reflect the high wholesale electricity prices the region experienced last winter. The panel discussed how utilities and competitive suppliers manage the risk of procuring supply in the wholesale electricity market.

About the panel: Anne George of ISO New England brought a regional perspective on what’s driving prices in the wholesale electricity market. Michael Corretto of UIL Holdings discussed the how gas distribution companies procure gas supplies for their customers.  Mr. Coretto also brought the perspective of a regulated electric distribution company that procures supply on behalf of customers served by UI. Taff Schamler of North American Power spoke from the perspective of a competitive retail supplier buying in the wholesale market.
