Join us in a free webinar at 10 a.m. on June 16 on Zoom --  NCAC members only, Chatham House rules and closed to media.


There's less than a week left to register here: https://www.ncac-usaee.org/event-3859324  


Two leading authorities will give us a look into PJM's minimum offer price rule, better known as the MOPR.


The speakers are PJM Vice President for Federal Government Policy Craig Glazer and Jason Stanek, Chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission.


The PJM MOPR covers a lot of territory and has been in the works for years. It was designed to prevent new capacity-market sellers from depressing prices by offering their resources at reduced prices to clear a capacity auction.


On April 16, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued two orders that clarify many aspects of the MOPR. Among other matters, FERC said that RECs that are voluntarily purchased and not used in a state renewable portfolio standards program are not state subsidies, and neither is the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. 


Our speakers will address these and other topics: 


Craig Glazer coordinates all of PJM's regulatory and legislative policies in Washington. Prior to coming to PJM, he was commissioner and chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio in the 1990s, where he led Ohio toward restructuring the  telephone, natural gas, transportation and electric industries.



Jason Stanek was appointed Chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission on July 1, 2018. He had served as Senior Counsel to the Energy Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Energy and Commerce.  Before that, he served in senior positions at FERC, National Fuel Gas Company and the CFTC.

The non-member price of $20 entitles attendees to membership in the NCAC-USAEE for the remainder of 2020.
