PJM Grid

What is the PJM Grid?

PJM Interconnection coordinates the continuous buying, selling, and delivery of wholesale electricity through the Energy Market. In its role as market operator, PJM balances the needs of suppliers, wholesale customers, and other market participants and monitors market activities to ensure open, fair, and equitable access.

What is Demand Response?

Demand Response, a planned reduction in electricity use during times of high demand, helps maintain grid reliability by reducing the stress on the system. PJM encourages Demand Response activity in the PJM Grid to help reduce wholesale electricity prices and reduce electricity usage to address environmental concerns.
