Regulated Utilities

The Commission regulates electric, gas, telephone, and water utilities to ensure that Maine citizens have access to safe and reliable utility services at rates that are just and reasonable for residential and business consumers and public utilities, while also helping achieve reductions in state greenhouse gas emissions.

The Commission also responds to customer questions and complaints, grants utility operating authority, regulates utility service standards and monitors utility operations for safety and reliability and has authority over rates and service of ferry transportation in Casco Bay.
