Mission: To maintain an organization of the utility regulatory agencies of those states and the district of columbia (collectively "opsi") within which pjm interconnection, llc ("pjm") provides or oversees electric transmission, market maintenance and monitoring, reliability, security and other transmission system operating services as a regional transmission operator ("rto") as approved by the federal energy regulatory commision ("ferc").
Programs: All elected/appointed officials of the 14 member states' utility commissions and their staff are automatically members and therefore are served by opsi. This equates to 70 commissioners and nearly 3,000 technical/legal/administrative staff persons. Opsi does not issue/publish any publications but files documents in proceedings before the federal energy regulatory commission as needed. Opsi members do appear at conferences and seminars as speakers. Most documents filed by opsi are publicly available. Policy discussions and positions are taken by opsi members that may affect the use of electricity in the region and energy in general.
