Washington Energy Regulations

In Washington, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) provides the protection of consumers by ensuring that utility and transportation services are fairly priced.  The UTC regulates the rates, services, and practices of privately-owned utilities and transportation companies, including electric, telecommunications, natural gas, water, and solid waste collection companies, pipelines, commercial ferries, buses, and motor carriers.  Some of the functions of the UTC include promoting environmentally responsible energy production and services, promoting usage of public resources efficiently, and protecting the life and property of consumers.

In addition, the Department of Commerce provides the comprehensive energy plan for meeting future energy needs.
