Dear Dr. Almgren, Mr. Asthana, and the PJM Board of Managers,

The undersigned organizations, which encompass a broad and diverse range of interests within PJM, write to emphasize the importance of PJM continuing its efforts to consider integrating carbon pricing in its market. With continued and heightened focus by states in the PJM market on reducing carbon emissions from power generation, PJM should continue to work with stakeholders to explore the relative roles that its competitive wholesale markets and state policies should play in shaping the quantity and composition of resources needed to meet such carbon emission reduction goals while cost-effectively meeting future reliability and operational needs.

We also note that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently announced a Commissioner-led technical conference to explore considerations related to carbon pricing in organized markets.

PJM is currently grappling with how to reconcile wholesale markets and state policies related to reducing carbon emissions. Given the current interest in exploring how PJM’s competitive wholesale markets can be better aligned with state policy objectives, PJM, stakeholders, and state regulators need to continue to discuss issues raised regarding integrating state carbon pricing policies in PJM’s market. To that end, it is paramount that the Carbon Pricing Senior Task Force continue to explore practical, technical, and implementation issues related to how PJM’s markets can potentially account for state policy through carbon pricing.

We thank PJM for its leadership on this topic to date and, for the reasons discussed above,
encourage it to continue that conversation through the Carbon Pricing Senior Task Force. Thank
you in advance for consideration of our request.
