Description:

The Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) is an independent regulatory agency dedicated to serving the public interest by assuring safe, reliable and reasonably priced services for public utilities and other carriers. The Commission has jurisdiction over publicly-owned utilities providing electric, water, wastewater, natural gas, and telecommunication services, as well as all the electric cooperatives in Louisiana. The LPSC also regulates intrastate transportation services including passenger carrier services, waste haulers, household goods carriers, non-consensual towing, and intrastate pipelines. The companies under the Commission!€™s jurisdiction must obtain approval before instituting new rates, issuing stocks and bonds, transferring assets, and undertaking major construction projects such as additional power plants, transmission lines, etc. Municipally owned utilities are not under the jurisdiction of the Commission. LPSC implemented the "Do Not Call" Program throughout Louisiana.

The Commission is required by the Louisiana Constitution to maintain its chief office at the site of the State Capitol and is required by law to conduct monthly meetings. The Chief Executive Officer of the Commission, Eve Kahao Gonzalez, is the Executive Secretary. She is appointed by and responsible to the Commissioners for the Commission!€™s day-to-day operations. The Commission Staff consists of administrative law judges, attorneys, auditors, economists, engineers, professional and clerical support, and rate analysts. The Staff is organized into nine Divisions (see the organizational chart for more information). All Divisions have a Division Head who reports directly to the Executive Secretary.
