Jim Price (BS '74)

With 19 years now in working for the California Independent System Operator (ISO) on electricity market development, I have seen our electric market extend from initially real-time operations to add a robust day-ahead market, and now extend from California to serving most of the western US. I'm not retired yet since I'm having too much fun being part of this company. In the meantime, looking toward retirement in late 2020, and after winning several awards in national and international mead (honey wine) competitions, I am starting Sierra Foothills Meadery. On other fronts, my wonderful wife Bev and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in December, just after our daughter's wedding (and several months after my step-daughter's wedding).
