The VSPC is divided into six equally weighted voting sectors, each of which has one vote determined by the majority of members within the sector. The Public Utility Commission appoints the public members and the supply resources representative in the Supply & Demand Resources Sector. The graphic at right shows the composition of the six sectors.
