The rapid development of natural gas fired power plants and subsequent issue of electric regulations makes this an idea time for the Mahoning Valley to hear directly from Public Utilities Commission of Ohio Commissioner Trombold who is also the immediate past president of the Organization of PJM States, Inc., an organization of 14 state commissions in the service area of PJM, the regional transmission operator. The PUCO regulates providers of all kinds of utility services, including electric and natural gas companies, local and long distance telephone companies, water and wastewater companies, rail and trucking companies.
