Monthly wholesale electricity prices and demand in New England, October 2016

November 18, 2016

Lower demand, driven by milder weather, and lower natural gas prices pulled October’s average monthly power price down 30%, to $22.72 per megawatt-hour (MWh), compared to the October 2015 average price of $32.62/MWh. The wholesale power price during October was the sixth-lowest since the wholesale electricity markets in their current form were launched in 2003 in New England, and the natural gas price was the eighth-lowest during that time period. Total energy consumption in New England in October was the lowest of any October since 2000, and the fourth-lowest monthly consumption.
