The PSC's Role
The Florida Public Service Commission is committed to making sure that Florida's
consumers receive some of their most essential services — electric, natural
gas, telephone, water, and wastewater — in a safe, reasonable, and reliable
manner. In doing so, the PSC
exercises regulatory authority over utilities in one or more of three key areas:
rate base/economic regulation; competitive market oversight; and monitoring of safety,
reliability, and service.

not regulate, go to our brochure entitled
