Warning of New Utility Scam

Vermonters are receiving calls claiming to represent the PUC and offering a monthly utility credit of $50 in exchange for personal and financial information. The PUC is not responsible for these calls. Call the Attorney General's Consumer Assistance Program at 800-649-2424 to report scam activity.

Public Utility Commission

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.
