Public Utility Commission > Web site
Since 1911, the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (PUC) has regulated customer rates and services of the state’s investor-owned electric, natural gas and telephone utilities and certain water companies. The PUC does not regulate people’s utility districts, cooperatives or municipally-owned utilities except in matters of safety. The PUC conducts its business at public hearings and in public meetings scheduled every two weeks at its headquarters in Salem. The PUC encourages public involvement in its decisions. The PUC’s regulatory responsibilities are carried out by a staff of about 129 employees. Each year, the PUC issues a variety of reports about utility companies.
