Who We Are

Established in 2013, Consumer Advocates of the PJM States, Inc. (CAPS) is a non-profit organization whose members represent over 65-million consumers in the 13 PJM States and the District of Columbia.  Regulatory rules vary greatly across our jurisdictions, but in each the electricity costs paid by consumers is at least partly determined by the tariff and rules under which PJM operates.  PJM and its stakeholders set those rules and CAPS' engagement is necessary to ensure that consumers' voices are heard.


Our mission is to actively engage in the PJM stakeholder process and at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to ensure that the prices we pay for reliable, wholesale electric service are reasonable.
