ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The attorneys general of Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia are urging the nation's biggest electric grid operator to choose a CEO who will help with "efforts to address climate change" and embrace changes needed to make clean energy programs successful.

The letter signed by Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, Delaware Attorney General Kathleen Jennings and District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine was sent last week to a panel searching for a new CEO for PJM Interconnection.

The officials say the new PJM president should have the leadership skills to drive innovations in its markets and operations "to support the necessary shift to clean energy."

In May, PJM announced the retirement of former CEO Andrew Ott and a search committee to find a new CEO.
