ISO New England is the independent, not-for-profit company authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to oversee the day-to-day operation of New England’s electric power generation and transmission system, administer the region’s competitive wholesale electricity markets, and manage comprehensive regional power system planning. The tour will include an overview of ISO New England and its three critical roles, as well as an update on regional energy issues. Attendees will also have an opportunity to view the ISO’s state-of-the-art backup control center (BCC). In the unlikely event that the master control center is rendered inoperable, fully redundant systems at the BCC enable system operators to continue managing the grid reliably by monitoring, dispatching, and directing the flow of electricity.
ISO New England is a secure facility. Attendees must provide their name, affiliation, and email address in advance. We cannot accommodate visitors who arrive unannounced. When you arrive, you will be required to provide to the Duty Officer before entering
the premises. You may not enter the facility without photo identification.

The “Village Green Station” is a wind- and solar-powered air monitoring bench that has been installed in the park abutting the Connecticut Science Center in downtown Hartford. Located in the back of the Convention Center, at the mezzanine level by the coffee shop, outside the back door out of the Convention Center. EPA's Village Green Stations are park bench structures with built-in air monitors which measure ozone and particle pollution along with weather conditions. The bench is made from recycled materials and features solar panels and a wind turbine. Walk by any time to check out the current data about local air quality that is displayed on a sign next to the bench and reported to www.airnow.gov/villagegreen.
