LAW 9134 - Renewable Power Seminar: Public Utilities Research

This guide is intended to assist students in Professor Rossi's Renewable Power Seminar in researching and writing their seminar papers.

A Utilities commission, Utility Regulatory Commission (URC), Public Utilities Commission (PUC) or Public Service Commission (PSC) is a governing body that regulates the rates and services of a public utility. In some cases, government bodies with the title "Public Service Commission" may be civil service oversight bodies, rather than utilities regulators.

The utility that is being regulated may be owned by the consumers that it serves, a mutual utility like a Public Utility District, a state-owned utility, or it may be a stockholder owned utility either publicly traded on a stock exchange or closely held among just a few investors.
