Mr. Eisenstark maintains active state and federal energy regulatory practices, with experience in rate cases, rulemaking, renewable energy, demand response and energy efficiency issues, regulatory audits, and transmission formula rate cases and incentive rate filings. He has experience drafting legislation and counseling on legislative matters, as well as appellate experience in both state and federal courts.
Mr. Eisenstark has personally litigated hundreds of utility rate and regulatory filings to successful completion, and was the main drafter of New Jersey state legislation permitting utilities to own renewable generation and energy efficiency measures and to earn a full return on investment. He also successfully defended, in both state and federal courts, a New Jersey Board of Public Utilities decision allowing utilities to retain ownership of renewable energy certificates for pre-existing power purchase contracts.

Prior to that, he served as Managing Attorney for Electric for the State of New Jersey's Ratepayer Advocate Division, now called the Division of Rate Counsel, where he represented utility customers in matters before state and federal courts and provided analysis and testimony on state legislation involving the energy industry. In this position, Mr. Eisenstark played an active role in the transformation of PJM Interconnection from a power pool to an independent system operator, and served as the division's initial representative on the Public Interest and Environmental Organization User Group on behalf of PJM.
Mr. Eisenstark earned his J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law, Newark in 1991. While in law school, he served as a law clerk in the New Jersey Attorney General's Office, Division of Law, Public Utilities Section where he drafted briefs and research memoranda in regulatory, administrative, and enforcement matters involving public utilities in New Jersey.
