March 11, 2019

The New York ISO directs the electricity that powers homes, businesses, schools and hospitals; from where it's generation to where you need it.

We provide 24-hour-a-day management of the 11,000 miles of transmission wires in New York State, and we run the wholesale power markets that control how energy is bought and sold in the state. As private, non-profit organization, we provide transparent and independent oversight of the energy grid. We are, in every way, the People Who Power New York. For more on who we are and what we do, watch this video:

We are an independent, not-for-profit corporation responsible for operating the state’s bulk electricity grid, administering New York’s competitive wholesale electricity markets, conducting comprehensive long-term planning for the state’s electric power system, and advancing the technological infrastructure of the electric system serving the Empire State.
