To file a new case using ePUC:
- Log in to ePUC
- Select the appropriate type of case you would like to file from the list in the left navigation menu
- Fill out and submit the form, attaching public documents as necessary
- Until further notice from the Commission, do not use ePUC to file any documents that contain confidential information. Instead file with the Commission paper copies of all documents that contain confidential information in a sealed envelope that is labeled “confidential” and provide one copy of each document to each party in the case who is authorized to see the document. If you have questions about how to file documents that contain confidential information, contact the Clerk of the Commission or call (802) 828-2358. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission has established special procedures for filing documents that contain confidential information for use through April 13, 2021.
Please note that depending on the type of case, you may need to provide notice of or a copy of your filing to other people. More information about such requirements is available in the statutes and Commission rules applicable to the particular type of case and, for the most common types of cases filed with the Commission, in the documents summarizing the typical procedures for those cases.
In ePUC, you may save cases that you have initiated but have not yet submitted to the Commission. When you save an unsubmitted case, information entered in a field is saved in your draft; no attached documents are saved. To see such cases, click the My Cases link and go to the My Unsubmitted Drafts tab.
The Commission’s Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC contain more information about the procedures to be followed when using ePUC to make a filing with the Commission.
Until further notice, you may also file a new case by mailing an original and an appropriate number of paper copies to:
Clerk of the Commission
Public Utility Commission
112 State Street, 4th Floor
Montpelier, VT 05620
More information about the requirements for filing in paper is available in Commission Rule 2.200 and Commission Emergency Rule 2.500.
