Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO)

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) affects just about every household in Ohio. That’s because the PUCO regulates providers of all kinds of utility services, including electric and natural gas companies, local and long distance telephone companies, water and wastewater companies, and rail and trucking companies. The PUCO was created to assure Ohioans adequate, safe, and reliable public utility services at a fair price.
