Minnesota Public Utilities Commission

From Open Energy Information

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) regulates three cornerstone service industries in Minnesota's economy, i.e., electricity, natural gas and telephone. Commission staff consists of approximately 50 permanent full-time staff. The Commission's mission is to protect and promote the public's interest in safe, adequate and reliable utility services at fair, reasonable rates. It does so by providing independent, consistent, professional and comprehensive oversight and regulation of utility service providers. One of the key functions of the commission in performing this mission is to balance the private and public interests affected in each docket, and to make decisions that appropriately balance these interests in a manner that is “consistent with the public interest.”
