In February 2022, the California Choice Energy Authority (CalChoice) welcomed Regulatory Affairs Manager Antonia (Toni) Graham. In her new role, Graham will support regulatory and legislative issues on behalf of CalChoice members. She brings with her twenty years of experience working for local government and leading sustainability initiatives.
“CalChoice has an excellent reputation for establishing effective CCA programs in California, which matches both my skill sets and interests,” said Graham. “I look forward to advancing the organization’s mission, while collaborating with its team of dynamic staff.”
Before joining CalChoice, Graham served as the Chief Operating Officer for the Orange County Power Authority (OCPA). During her tenure, she established and implemented a CCA program serving nearly 300,000 customers. Prior to her position at OCPA, she served as the Deputy City Manager for the City of Fullerton and the Assistant to the City Manager/Energy and Sustainability Manager for the City of Huntington Beach. While working in local government, she oversaw a variety of administrative programs, including a range of sustainability initiatives. She is an energy market specialist with a knack for fundraising and generating community engagement.
“Not only is Toni knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced with community choice energy, but she’s also a creative and practical leader,” said CalChoice Executive Director Jason Caudle. “We are thrilled to have Toni join our team.”
Graham holds a B.A. in Political Science and American Studies, an MPA with a concentration in Public Finance, and a Master’s degree in Sustainability from Arizona State University.
