Energy manager for New Jersey’s energy industry to retire after retirement
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that it will retire its energy manager from the job after 20 years of service.
The move comes as New Jersey faces a $1.4 billion shortfall in its state’s budget.
New Jersey has a state of emergency declared in March due to the state’s worst-ever wildfires.
The state is also struggling to manage its aging electric grid.
According to a release, Energy Manager Dan Greschke will remain in his current role until June 1, 2018.
He will remain with the DEP until his retirement.
The department will also transition the role of Energy Management Manager to a new director.
