ISO New England has observed that since the wholesale electricity marketplace opened in May 1999, generating units have been responsive to ISO requests and made aggressive efforts to be available to meet peak demand. Following wholesale market signals, generating units typically conduct annual maintenance during time periods when electricity demand is low and available capacity is more than adequate to meet demand. This maintenance generally occurs during the seasonal off-peak ï¿½shoulderï¿½ periods in the spring and fall. Peak demand occurs in New England in the summer and winter seasons.
