• About Public Advocates Office

  • Public Advocates Office's Mission

    The Public Advocates Office is an independent organization within the CPUC that advocates solely on behalf of utility ratepayers. Our Director is appointed by the Governor and has its own independent operating budget. Our statutory mission is to obtain the lowest possible rate for service consistent with reliable and safe service levels. As the only State entity charged with this responsibility, we have a critical role in ensuring that consumers are represented at the CPUC on matters that affect how much consumers pay for utility services and the quality of those services.
