Seminars on new power market

The Business Council will help its members circumvent "the extravagant $1,200 fee" being charged for a seminar on electric deregulation planned by the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), a successor organization to the New York Power Pool.

The seminars scheduled in Albany and Houston, Texas, in the next three months will give information on how businesses and others can cope with the coming deregulation of the electric power market in New York State.

Because The Business Council believes that the $1200 fee is far more than the average small business can be expected to pay, it will send a staff member to the seminar next week. He will write reports on the sessions and gather copies of all printed material.

The Council will then provide that information for free to any of its 4,000 member companies that request it.
