Kentucky Public Service Commission

The mission of the Kentucky Public Service Commission is to foster the provision of safe and reliable service at a reasonable price to the customers of jurisdictional utilities while providing for the financial stability of those utilities by setting fair and just rates, and supporting their operational competence by overseeing regulated activities.

Currently, the Commission regulates the intrastate rates and services of investor-owned electric, natural gas, telephone, water and sewage utilities, customer-owned electric and telephone cooperatives, water districts and associations, and certain aspects of gas pipelines. The following are some of the areas for which the Commission has regulatory responsibility:

  1. Rate increase or reduction.
  2. Expansion or reduction of utility service boundaries.
  3. Construction and operation of utility facilities.
  4. Meter accuracy.
  5. Operating conditions of a utility.
  6. Management audits.
  7. Valuation of utility property.
  8. Natural gas and coal purchasing practices.
  9. Issuance or assumption of securities by a utility.
  10. Consumer complaints.
  11. Compliance with service and safety regulations.
