Ancillary Services

Ancillary services help balance the transmission system as it moves electricity from generating sources to ultimate consumers. PJM operates several markets for ancillary services: the Synchronized Reserve Market, the Non-Synchronized Reserve Market, the Day-Ahead Scheduling Reserve Market and the Regulation Market. Learn more about ancillary services at the Learning Center.
