     Vermont Public Service Board

Mission Statement

The Public Service Board is a quasi-judicial board that supervises the rates, quality of service, and overall financial management of Vermont's public utilities: cable television, electric, gas, telecommunications, water and large wastewater companies. It also reviews the environmental and economic impacts of energy purchases and facilities, the safety of hydroelectric dams, the financial aspects of nuclear plant decommissioning and radioactive waste storage, and the rates paid to independent power producers. The Board's mission is to ensure the provision of high quality public utility services in Vermont at minimum reasonable costs, measured over time periods consistent with the long-term public good of the state. The Board strives to achieve this mission by providing an independent, fair and efficient means of resolving public utility disputes; and by guiding the development of state utility policies and rules for public services to best serve the long-term interest of Vermont and its residents, all as defined in Title 30 V.S.A.
