The terms of this agreement will be outlined in a filing that will be submitted on October 16 to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Customers in the region will benefit from the expanded energy market and enhancements to the transmission system’s reliability. Through this affiliation, PJM will expand its regional scope and demonstrate the ability of its energy market and congestion management systems to function over multiple control areas. Allegheny Power will satisfy the FERC’s independence requirement for its transmission system operations while continuing to pursue the development of a large, regional, independent transmission entity.
