ISO/RTO Council

The ISO/RTO Council (IRC) is comprised of ten Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) in North America. These ISOs and RTOs serve two-thirds of electricity consumers in the United States and more than 50 percent of Canada's population. The IRC works collaboratively to develop effective processes, tools, and methods for improving competitive electricity markets across North America. The IRC's goal is to balance reliability considerations with market practices, resulting in efficient, robust markets that provide competitive and reliable service to electricity users.
