Liz focuses her practice on electricity regulation and represents clients before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). With a passion for the complexity and ever-changing nature of the issues facing the electric industry, Liz advises clients regarding the Federal Power Act and related federal and state statutes.

Liz assists regional transmission organizations (RTOs) throughout complex FERC rulemaking proceedings and other matters. Her work with RTOs includes advising clients as they problem-solve to accommodate new and emerging technologies, with a particular focus on energy storage resources. She assists clients with drafting tariff revisions to address issues arising in RTO-operated energy, capacity, and ancillary services markets. She also advises clients on regional planning issues, including interconnection service and the drafting of related service agreements.

Immediately prior to joining Wright & Talisman, Liz served as in-house counsel to PJM Interconnection, L.L.C., where she advised clients on numerous markets and planning issues. She also has extensive experience representing investor-owned utilities and industrial energy consumers before FERC and state public utility commissions with matters such as tariff modifications, market-based rate authority, and cost allocation.
