AARP New Jersey
Jim Dieterle, a Rutgers University graduate, was employed by New Jersey’s largest energy utility, PSE&G, for 30 years. His work annually helped bring millions in bill payment assistance to many hundreds of thousands of low-income PSE&G customers. He subsequently became AARP N.J. State Director and, during 17 years in that position, helped spearhead the enactment of over 20 consumer-oriented N.J. state laws. On April 13, 2015 Dieterle retired from AARP and the next day began a new role serving as an AARP volunteer. His AARP volunteer efforts include both New Jersey and multi-state “Affordable Utilities” initiatives designed to help bring millions in additional utility bill payment assistance to moderate-income households in need.
