BOSTON — The operator of New England’s electric grid has scheduled a public meeting to review the 10-year plan for the region’s power system.

The ISO-New England plan to be discussed today at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston outlines the region’s electricity needs for the next 10 years and explores the generation, demand-side resources, and transmission improvements that can meet those needs.

Two panel discussions will feature federal and state regulators and other industry experts discussing two key issues that will affect the region’s power grid: integrating wind resources in New England and the impact of environmental policies on the region’s generation fleet.

The keynote speaker is scheduled to be Cheryl LaFleur, a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The final 2011 plan is expected to be issued in October.
