The selection was made Thursday at the OPSI 2017 Annual Meeting at the Hilton Crystal City in Arlington, VA.

I appreciate the confidence my colleagues have placed in me and look forward to continue working on PJM and FERC issues that impact consumers,” said Rosales. “Commissioner Rosales has shown tremendous leadership as a member of the board of directors for OPSI and will do an outstanding job as President,” said ICC Chairman Brien J.

OPSI activities include, but are not limited to, coordinating activities such as data collection, issue analyses and policy formulation related to PJM, its operations, its market monitor and related Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) matters, as well as their individual roles as statutory regulators within their respective state boundaries. Rosales was appointed to a four-year term on the Illinois Commerce Commission in March of 2016. He is also Vice Chairman of the Electricity Committee for the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).
