Question:

Who/what is a stakeholder?


Answer:

Stakeholders are the PJM membersOPSI and its members, state consumer advocates who are not PJM members, the Independent Market Monitor, PJM staff, and PJM’s Board of Managers. PJM stakeholders have a “seat at the table” to discuss PJM’s operations, markets, and reliability as well as issues concerning the electricity industry for today and tomorrow.

Not all PJM stakeholders are PJM members. Stakeholders who are not members are invited to participate in stakeholder meetings to foster collaboration between members, government organizations, advocates, and the general public. However, stakeholders who are not members cannot vote in committee or sub-committee meetings.
