ISO New England Recaps Summer 2016: Uneventful until August
ISO New England has provided a full recap of summer 2016, stating that the summer was fairly uneventful until August arrived with its long stretches of hot, humid weather that pushed up demand for air conditioning and the electricity that powers it. Despite a high number of unexpected resource outages on one August day, ISO New England’s control room operators were able to operate the power system reliably that day and throughout the summer.
