Our Work

Who We Work With


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) oversight of wholesale electricity markets and transmission planning affect large industrial energy consumers. FERC’s mission is implementing and enforcing laws that protect consumers by ensuring reliable service at just and reasonable rates. Many large manufacturers are directly connected to the transmission grid and are impacted by a host of FERC policies and tariffs, including the terms and conditions of interconnection agreements and mandatory reliability standards. Many ELCON members also buy power directly from FERC jurisdictional ISOs and RTOs. ELCON and its members regularly meet with commissioners and key staff to ensure the views of large industrial consumers are understood.
