Potomac Economics serves as the Independent Market Monitor for the wholesale electricity markets operated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).
ERCOT is a non-profit corporation that operates wholesale markets that coordinate the scheduling of power on an electric grid consisting of 75,000 megawatts of generation capacity and 43,000 miles of high-voltage transmission.
ERCOT’s members include retail consumers, investor- and municipally-owned electric utilities, rural electric co-ops, river authorities, independent generators, power marketers, and retail electric providers. ERCOT is regulated by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT).
