This Insight explores how solar power has performed operationally in ISO New England over the past year and whether or not the resource can be counted upon to meet power demand needs during the winter period. In particular, the recent snow storms in New England appear to have largely eliminated solar power production for an extended period. This has implications for future electric resource planning in the region.
