ComEd, AEP, Illinois Power Join PJM

LCG, June 26, 2002--Commonwealth Edison Co., Illinois Power, and American Electric Power Co. will join the grid operator PJM Interconnection LLC.

The utilities intend to create a for-profit independent transmission company with National Grid USA inside PJM's PJM West, although PJM itself is a nonprofit grid operator.

The four companies signed a memorandum of understanding and sent it to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission yesterday. ComEd, AEP, and Illinois power will join PJM whether or not the independent for-profit company is finalized.

PJM may become a Regional Transmission Operator, or RTO, if FERC decides to give the grid operator approval.
