Who is the Public Service Commission?
The Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) is an independent state agency responsible for regulating investor-owned utilities, which provide electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water and sewer service to households and businesses throughout the state.
What does the Public Service Commission do?
The PSC is responsible for regulating the rates, safety and quality of service of those investor-owned electric, natural gas, water and sewer utilities. The Commission also has limited authority over most landline or wireline telecommunication services. The PSC regulates the operational safety of the state’s rural electric cooperatives and municipally-owned natural gas utilities. The Commission also regulates manufacturers and dealers of manufactured homes or modular units.
- Generally, open meetings are held each week at the Commission’s Jefferson City office.
- The five-member Commission discusses the items on the agenda and votes on whether to approve, deny or modify orders.
- The public is welcome to attend the meetings; they are also webcast.
- Meeting minutes and agendas are posted and archived on the PSC website.
- Webcasts of previous meetings can also be viewed.
- The Public Service Commission’s Electronic Filing and Information System (EFIS) provides for the electronic submission of filed documents and online access of documents submitted in formal cases before the Commission. EFIS Fact Sheet
- Documents are available in Portable Document Format (PDF) unless otherwise noted.
- Every case has a docket number assigned to it. The first letter identifies the type of utility (i.e., E for electric, G for gas, W for water, S for sewer). The second letter identifies the type of case (i.e., A for application, M for merger, R for rate and C for complaint). The first set of numbers refers to the fiscal year in which the case was filed; and the last set of numbers indicate the sequential case number of each filing.
- The docket entries are shown in reverse chronological order, meaning the newest items are listed first.
- If you know the number of the case you are interested in, please proceed to the Docket Sheet. Press "enter" after typing in the case number.
