Members elect Sarah Rogers to PJM Interconnection board

Valley Forge, Pa., May 17, 2012 — The PJM Interconnection Members Committee elected Sarah S. Rogers to the PJM Board of Managers.

Rogers fills the vacancy arising from the retirement of Lynn W. Eury, who, as an original board member in 1997, served for 15 years.

Rogers contributes her strong industry knowledge as CEO of Florida Reliability Coordinating Council and her previous experience with Progress Energy, including her last position there as the vice president for transmission.

Neel Foster and Schneider were re-elected to three-year terms on the board.

PJM Interconnection, founded in 1927, ensures the reliability of the high-voltage electric power system serving 60 million people in all or parts of Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

PJM coordinates and directs the operation of the region's transmission grid, which includes 62,000 miles of transmission lines; administers a competitive wholesale electricity market; and plans regional transmission expansion improvements to maintain grid reliability and relieve congestion.
