John Goodin

Regulatory Policy Manager, Market and Infrastructure Policy,
California Independent System Operator

John has worked for the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) since before its launch and has therefore participated in the entire development and evolution of California’s wholesale energy markets. His current responsibilities involve development of resource adequacy and demand response policy and products for CAISO. Before joining CAISO, John worked in both the regulated and deregulated sides of the electricity industry, first with Pacific Gas & Electric and later with PG&E Energy Services. The bulk of John’s decade-long experience with these companies was spent working on demand side management and load management products, both at the program management level and directly with retail customers.

John has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
