(7.) These regions are: California ISO (CA), Northwest Power Pool (NWPP), Mountain Power Area (MOUNT), Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), Southwest Power Pool (SPP), Midwest ISO (MISO), Southeast Power Pool (SEAST), Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland Interconnection (PJM), New York ISO (NY), and New England ISO (NENGL).
(18.) In terms of the regional aggregation described in Figure 1, the Eastern Interconnection thus comprises SPP, MISO, SEAST, PJM, NY, and NENGL, and the WECC comprises CA, NWPP, and MOUNT.
The NWPP's Central Committee meeting held under the chair of Chairman Narayan Man Bijukchhe took the decision to withdraw support alleging that the government had utterly failed to implement the 18-point demand forwarded by the party before the formation of the government.
Altogether five NWPP members represent the 601-member Interim Legislature parliament.
