PJM members approved several different revisions to the Operating Agreement and PJM President and CEO Andy Ott thanked members for their work with PJM in conjunction with PJM’s 90th anniversary at the Sept. 28 Members Committee meeting.
PJM was founded in 1927, when PECO, PSE&G and PPL realized the value of reliability and the efficiency of sharing and coordinating their generation resources.
Ott said today, regional coordination and markets save about $3 billion annually in savings for its more than 1,000 members.
He credited PJM’s success to the collective effort of PJM, members and stakeholders, citing them as “thought leaders, collectively.”
“On leading edge issues, we deal with them as a community. Our discussions are so well done, I think we come up with some good solutions.”
“Thank you for your engagement.”
The committee approved proposed revisions to the Operating Agreement on the redesign of the Transmission Expansion Advisory Committee redesign and proposal window timeline expansion. PJM proposed a 60-day duration for proposal windows. Ideally there would be one 60-day proposal window occurring around June of each year.
The committee also endorsed revisions to the Tariff and Operating Agreement on time limitation on claims
In addition, in response to concerns expressed at the Stakeholder Forum on Sept. 25, PJM will ask the Market & Reliability Committee, Markets Implementation Committee, Planning Committee and Operating Committee to review their calendars and milestones to give stakeholders more time to explore issues.
