The Public Utility Commission of Texas, or PUC, works to regulate the electric, telecommunication, and investor-owned water utilities throughout Texas. Through this regulation, the PUC oversees all aspects of a utility’s business, including the rates it may charge. Understanding the myriad of regulations governing utilities in the State of Texas can be daunting. The staff at The Jones Law Firm PC has the experience and expertise to help your company navigate permitting or designation and rate-making at the PUC.
