Edward Randolph is Director of the Energy Division at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), which provides technical support to the Commissioners and their offices, and the Administrative Law Judges. The Energy Division drafts resolutions for formal consideration by the Commission. Resolutions generally result from informal utility requests called Advice Letters, which are submitted by utilities to request rate and tariff adjustments. The Energy Division through its Federal Policy and Ratemaking Section represents the Commission in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and court proceedings. The Energy Division assists the Commission in its regulation of four types of Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs): Electric, Natural Gas, Steam and Petroleum Pipeline Companies. Commission-approved tariffs (official rates and terms of service) for these four types of IOUs are maintained by the Energy Division. Prior to his current position, he served as Director of the Office of Government Affairs overseeing legislative affairs for the CPUC (2009-2011) , and as Chief Policy Advisor to the Utilities and Commerce Committee in the California State Assembly (2003-2009). He is a graduate of University of the Pacific-McGeorge School of Law and UC, San Diego. http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUC/aboutus/Divisions/Energy+Division/index.htm
