RTO Insider seeks a Mid-Atlantic reporter
RTO Insider has a job opening for a Mid-Atlantic reporter based in the Philadelphia area.
Your job will revolve around coverage of the PJM Interconnection, which manages the electric grid for all or parts of 13 states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia) and the District of Columbia.
As a Regional Transmission Operator (RTO), PJM (See https://pjm.com) manages the electric grid and wholesale electric markets — a combination of an air traffic controller and the New York Stock Exchange.
We seek someone able to translate complex issues into readable prose. Knowledge of economics, business concepts and basic physics helpful.
You’ll be covering stakeholder meetings every month in Valley Forge and Wilmington, Del. You’ll also be writing up filings with — and rulings by — the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (www.ferc.gov) plus enterprise stories.
We are building The Wall Street Journal of the electric power industry. I am an award-winning former reporter and editor with The Philadelphia Inquirer and Bloomberg who believes trade publications don’t have to be dull or poorly written.
Trade publishing is one of the few sustainable business models for journalists. We will pay a very competitive hourly rate for the right person.
