ISO New England's weekly analysis of the impact the response to COVID-19 is having on regionwide system demand, posted here every Tuesday. The ISO first observed an impact on system demand during the third week of March 2020 when the pandemic response began. Overall, loads are trending lower than normally would be expected. Percentages will fluctuate from week to week as shown in the following slides. Explanations of how to read the data on these slides are available on the ISO Newswire.
*Note: ISO New England published the final Estimated Impacts of COVID-19 on Demand on February 28, 2022.
