Who monitors energy prices in this new market?
As a result of deregulation, a quasi-governmental agency was created for deregulation, the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO). This organization is responsible for creating a free marketplace for electricity sales and an unbiased operating system for moving electricity from where it is made to where it is distributed. These are two essential elements to prevent market participants from taking advantage of the marketplace.
