Gary Epler, Esq.

Clean Energy & Climate Change

Gary Epler brings to CLF significant experience in energy and utility regulatory and legal matters from several economic and client perspectives.  He recently retired from Unitil Corporation, where he was the company’s Chief Regulatory Counsel for 20 years.  Prior to joining Unitil, he was the General Counsel for the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission.  He began working on energy and utility matters in 1983 as an Assistant Attorney General in the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office.  Gary also was a staff attorney for the New York Public Utility Law Project, representing low-income customers before the New York Public Service Commission, and was the Managing Attorney, Electric and Gas, for the New Jersey Office of the Ratepayer Advocate. Gary is a news junkie and enjoys discussing politics and economics.  He loves hiking (a romance that began in the Sangre De Cristo mountains when he lived in Santa Fe NM) and bicycling (in 1977, during the summer before he entered law school, he and his brother road their bikes coast-to-coast – from Eugene OR to NYC).
