PJM has appointed Vickie VanZandt, president of VanZandt Electric Transmission Consulting, to its Board of Managers, the RTO announced Friday.

PJM has appointed Vickie VanZandt, the owner of a energy consulting firm, to its Board of Managers, according to a Friday statement from the RTO.

The president of VanZandt Electric Transmission Consulting, VanZandt will take the place of Sarah Rogers, who resigned from the board Sept. 2 after more than 10 years of service. VanZandt will begin her term Oct. 1 and will serve until at least May 2023, when she will stand for election at the RTO’s Annual Meeting.

Rogers, who had been re-elected in 2021, announced her intent to retire in May. PJM’s Operating Agreement stipulates that the board itself fills any vacancies until the next Annual Meeting, where members will vote on the appointment. PJM’s Nominating Committee recommended VanZandt for the appointment.

In addition to her consulting work, VanZandt currently serves on the ISO-NE Board of Directors, where she chairs the System Planning and Reliability Committee. She is serving her third consecutive three-year term on that board, the maximum allowed, and it will end the same day she begins her term at PJM. (See LaFleur Elected to ISO-NE Board.) Her departure will bring the ISO-NE board back down to its normal 10-person membership, after having 11 for one year. (See ISO-NE Elects Melvin Williams Jr. to Board.)

VanZandt has previously worked at the Bonneville Power Administration as a senior vice president and chief engineer of transmission services, overseeing transmission planning, construction, operation and management. She then worked at WECC as synchrophasor program manager.
