Public Hearings

Below we have provided you information about Public Service Commission Hearings. We have developed a document of guidelines for participating in PSC hearings for public comment:  Participation in PSC Public Hearings


Evidentiary Hearings and Public Conferences

In many cases the Public Service Commission (PSC) will schedule hearings to consider expert testimony from parties and allow cross-examination of witnesses. Sometimes the PSC will set a hearing date for presentations by utility representatives and government agencies. Members of the public typically do not make comments at those times, unless the PSC expressly invites public comment


Hearings for Public Comment

The PSC may schedule hearings to receive public comment in utility cases.  Public hearings must be scheduled in all cases involving utility rates and the construction of generating plant and transmission lines.  The Commission may arrange public hearings in other types of cases.

Upcoming Hearings include:
