That position will be restructured into dual officer-level roles, which will be filled by Stacey Crowley and Thomas J. Doughty, currently serving as directors at the ISO. A 38-year veteran of electricity industry public affairs and policy, Edson joined the ISO in 2005, becoming an integral part of the company's relationship with external state leaders.

Crowley, currently Director of Regional Affairs, will become the new Vice President of Regional and Federal Affairs; Doughty, currently Director of State Regulatory Strategy, will become the new Vice President of Customer and State Affairs. Crowley previously worked as policy advisor to Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, where she spearheaded Sandoval's energy objective at the regional and national levels, and managed Nevada's federal grant programs and economic incentive regulations for clean energy projects. She joined the ISO in 2013, and has since been leading outreach with key regulatory and industry stakeholders throughout the West. She is also facilitating a governance change to include a regional voice in the Energy Imbalance Market and coordinating the integration of new entities into the ISO. Doughty joined the ISO in 2003, assigned to lead customer care functions. He developed customer partnership programs and created the ISO stakeholder Symposium. Doughty currently oversees the ISO's interactions with state regulatory agencies. He has held senior leadership positions with many energy organizations, including the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and was a principal in the launch of electric vehicles 25 years ago.

California Independent System Operator to Move Backup Center from Los Angeles to Lincoln

California Independent System Operator to move its backup center from Los Angeles to Lincoln. Construction work started on a $30.4 million backup office in Lincoln. The company has had a backup center in Alhambra, in eastern Los Angeles County. The new Lincoln center will replace the Alhambra location, where company's lease expires in 2017. The company decided to move the backup location to Lincoln to be closer to headquarters. Lincoln is far enough away to perform a backup function, but close enough to be easy for personnel to get to in the event of emergency. Having the backup office in the next county will also make staffing and easier, with local employees able to work in either location. The new two-story building will be 35,800 square feet of office and data center space. It will have 25 to 50 employees. The new building, in the Lincoln Aviation Business Park, is expected to open a year from now.
