Competition and Market Power in the Northern Maine Electricity Market


Synapse worked with Exponent Failure Analysis to analyze the potential for market power problems if retail competition was established in Aroostook county, northern Maine.  This region faced unique market power concerns due to the fact that it was not interconnected with NEPOOL and has a very limited number of potential generation companies.  The study assessed a number of regulatory, institutional, and technical options for mitigating market power concerns.  Report dated November 1998.
