utility commissioners and officials of the National Association of
Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) to discuss the pricing
turmoil that hit the Midwest electricity markets in the last week
The Commission also will hear presentations from officials of
the Edison Electric Institute, the American Public Power
Association, the Electric Power Supply Association, the Electricity
Consumers Resource Council, and the National Rural Electric
Cooperatives Association. The meeting will be held from 9 a.m.

circumstances that led to power prices in the Midwest rising to as
high as $7,000 per MWh in late June.
