Who We Are
OPSI is an inter-governmental organization of utility regulatory agencies of 14 jurisdictions listed in the table below. These 14 jurisdictions are wholly or partly in the service area of PJM, a regional transmission operator (RTO) approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). PJM operates the high-voltage electric transmission grid and wholesale electricity market within its service area.
What We Do
OPSI's activities include, but are not limited to, coordinating data/issues analyses and policy formulation related to PJM, its operations, its Independent Market Monitor, and related FERC matters. While the 14 OPSI Members interact as a regional body, their collective actions as OPSI do not infringe on each of the 14 agencies' individual roles as the statutory regulators within their respective state boundaries.
