Welcome to NECA!
The Northeast Energy and Commerce Association (NECA) is New England's oldest and most broadly-based, non-profit trade association serving the competitive electric power industry. Founded in 1985, NECA's purpose is to facilitate an open forum among all electric power stakeholders to foster the development and maturation of competitive power markets. NECA promotes environmentally sound, reliable and cost-effective wholesale and retail markets for the production and delivery of electric power supply, as well as competing energy services and resource alternatives, including conservation, innovative demand-side and power delivery technologies, renewable energy and distributed generation.
NECA's 900 members, representing 143 entities, include developers and owner/operators of competitive power projects, both regulated and merchant transmission and distribution companies, power marketers and traders, fuel and equipment suppliers, power consumers and various service providers to the power industry, including law firms, investment bankers, environmental engineering and economic consulting firms.
From time to time, NECA has advocated positions on issues of importance to its members before legislative bodies and regulatory agencies in New England. Through its State & Regional Partner membership in the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA), the competitive power industry's premier national trade association, NECA also participates in the development of policies at the FERC and in Congress
