Public Staff

North Carolina Utilities Commission

Welcome to the Public Staff Website

Under North Carolina law, the Public Staff represents the using and consuming public: the customers of the State's investor-owned electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water and sewer, and transportation utilities.

The Public Staff is organized into operating Divisions, which are all supervised and directed by the Public Staff's Executive Director. The Executive Director sets policy and guidelines and ensures that the Public Staff presents a unified position in the best interest of the ratepayers on all issues before the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

From this website, you can get Consumer Assistance, explore the Divisions of the Public Staff, access the latest news, and more.
