The Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia was established by Congress in 1913 as an independent District government agency to regulate the electric, natural gas and telephone companies serving the city.
As an independent, quasi-judicial agency in the District government, the DCPSC functions like a court and the Commissioners fill the role of judges. All staff involved in formal cases are advisors to the Commissioners. This includes the Commissioners’ staff, the Office of the General Counsel (OGC), the Office of the Executive Director, the Office of Technical and Regulatory Analysis (OTRA) and, in some cases, the Office of Consumer Services (OCS).
