Devin Parram provides counsel to clients on a wide range of energy and utility issues. A significant portion of his practice focuses on litigating and processing cases before the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). Devin advises clients on various PUCO matters, ranging from routine regulatory filings to complex rate cases.

Devin regularly represents the Ohio Hospital Association in electric cases before the PUCO and advises hospitals regarding ratemaking proceedings, energy efficiency, energy procurement, distributed energy resource opportunities, and all PUCO regulatory matters that potentially impact the unique needs of health care providers. Devin also represents the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) before the PUCO in a variety of matters affecting residential and commercial consumers’ electric and natural gas rates. NOPEC is the largest public retail energy aggregation in the U.S., with approximately 220 county, township and municipal members. Devin also represents competitive energy suppliers on PUCO matters, including advising suppliers regarding the PUCO’s consumer protection rules.

At the OPSB, Devin represents major electric generation facility developers and natural gas utilities. He has served as lead counsel in fully-contested wind farm cases before the OPSB and as regulatory counsel in dozens of cases involving the development of natural gas pipeline infrastructure.

Outside of the regulatory space, Devin has represented a variety of clients regarding energy-related transactions by drafting and negotiating purchase power agreements, lease agreements, energy procurement agreements, utility management/optimization agreements, and asset purchase agreements related to the purchase of utility systems. He frequently works with hospitals, schools, businesses, and municipalities on these various energy transactional matters.

Prior to his career at Bricker Graydon, Devin served as an Assistant Attorney General with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office Public Utilities Section.
