He also sits on the board of many cultural and philanthropic organizations within the state and nation.

Board has been implementing governor’s clean energy initiative with a goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050 to bring the state into a clean energy future. Dr. Christodoulou will join his fellow Commissioners in deciding on the direction of key programs in offshore wind, energy efficiency, solar and electric vehicles as well as the Board’s primary role as the State’s utility regulator.

“This is an extremely important time to be part of NJ’s climate change solution,” said Commissioner Christodoulou. “I look forward to contributing to the many wonderful initiatives the Board is currently undertaking and to those yet to be developed. It is critically important that we remain conscious of the impact that our policies have on New Jersey’s ratepayers, while fostering an environment that supports the clean energy revolution.”
