The Public Utility Commission is an independent, three-member, quasi-judicial commission that regulates the siting of electric and natural gas infrastructure and supervises the rates, quality of service, and overall financial management of Vermont's public utilities: electric, gas, energy efficiency, telecommunications, cable television (terms of service only, not rates), water and large wastewater companies.



Name Change to Public Utility Commission!

The Public Service Board’s name has changed.  As of July 1, 2017, our new name is the Public Utility Commission, which is abbreviated as the PUC or as the Commission.  Our new name more clearly reflects our existing statutory responsibilities and will reduce confusion about the difference between us and the separate state agency known as the Public Service Department.

Other changes that occurred on July 1, 2017, include:

Please note that all content on our previous website is available on our new website; links to our old website will be automatically redirected to our new site's home page or you can substitute "puc" for "psb" in a link to be taken directly to the exact page on our new website.  Our telephone numbers and mailing and physical addresses did not change.

Phase 3 of ePUC Is Now Live; Order Revising ePUC Procedures Issued

Reports, Rulemakings, Telecom and Cable Application Forms

ePUC is an electronic filing and case management system that you can use to find information about Commission cases and read documents related to those cases. Many types of new cases can be filed in ePUC; subsequent phases of ePUC will go live later in 2017. Information on how to use ePUC, including the current version of the Commission’s Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC, is available.

Phase 3 of ePUC is now live.  As of November 15, 2017, the following additional types of cases may be filed in ePUC:  reports, rulemakings, telecommunications application forms, and cable television application forms.  Recordings of the November 16 and 17, 2017 online training sessions on how to file these types of cases are posted on the ePUC Help webpage.

On November 13, 2017, the Commission issued an order revising the Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC.  This order:  (1) expands the use of ePUC to all matters before the Commission with the exception of tariff cases and Dig Safe cases; (2) provides that service lists that are not part of an initial filing in a case may be appended to any other document, except for prefiled testimony or exhibits, and need not be uploaded as a separate document; and (3) clarifies various other provisions of the procedures.
