Governor Names Two to Energy Agency Board

Comments Off on Governor Names Two to Energy Agency Board

Governor Schwarzenegger today appointed two people to the board of the Independent System Operator (ISO), the agency that essentially oversees the state's energy operations.

Joining the board are Edward Cazalet, 62, of Los Altos Hills and Ken Wiseman, 53, of Fresno.

Cazalet was heavily involved in the beginnings of energy deregulation in California; in 1998 his firm, Automated Power Exchange, went head-to-head with the state-run California Power Exchange in purchasing energy from power generators.

Wiseman was vice-chairman of the ISO from 1997 to 2000.
