Karen HesterDCPSC welcomes Raj Barua as its new Chief of the Office of Policy and Development 
Join us in welcoming Raj Barua, the Commission’s new Chief of the Office of Policy and Development. Raj is known to many at the DCPSC as he previously worked at the public service commissions of Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. He brings his three decades of experience in energy and utility regulation, including leading the National Regulatory Research Institute for six years. Raj’s expertise is in energy and environmental policy, which was his specialty when he earned his doctorate from the University of Delaware in 1993.

Raj is passionate about new energy technologies that will create a clean environment, especially for those that will affect his new home in the District of Columbia. He looks forward to being a District resident and, during his off time, will continue his combined interests in hiking, photography and birding along the Potomac river.
