The Agency currently has eight members, consisting of six municipalities (Cities of Danville, Martinsville, Radford and Salem; Towns of Bedford and Richlands), one state institution (Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University) and one electric cooperative (Central Virginia Electric Cooperative). Blue Ridge represents its members’ interest in several forums by direct staff involvement and/or coordination of the efforts of its attorney(s) and/or consultant(s) as well as coalitions that may form to deal with a particular issue or with a particular entity. The main areas of member interest and focus are wholesale power supply and the related transmission service. This includes activities such as evaluation/recommendation of power supply opportunities and solicitations; power and transmission contract negotiations; representing member interests in the PJM regional transmission organization stakeholder process; state and federal regulatory proceedings and litigation; as well as lobbying directly and through national trade organizations on state and federal legislation. Blue Ridge assists members in working with their management and policy makers on power supply-related issues such as those aforementioned. In addition, members are supplied with current industry information and assistance with individual needs.
