A former president of the California Public Utilities Commission said Tuesday that the state attorney general should look into the rolling blackouts of mid-August with an eye toward signs of market manipulation in CAISO’s grid.

Loretta Lynch, CPUC president from 2000 to 2002 and a commissioner through 2005, spoke during a webinar held by the Clean Coalition, a Santa Barbara, Calif., group that advocates for renewable energy and microgrids.
