WELCOME TO THE ARKANSAS PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION'S WEBSITE.
The Commission is charged with the duty of ensuring that public utilities provide safe, adequate and reliable
utility service at just and reasonable rates. By law such rates must allow public utilities the opportunity
to recover the prudently incurred cost of providing such service and a fair rate of return on capital invested
by the utilities for the purpose of providing such service. The Commission is also charged with the duty of
ensuring that customers are not charged excessive rates for such service.
The APSC regulates the intrastate rates and services of the public utilities in Arkansas. These utilities provide
services. Through its
the Commission also determines ad
valorem assessments for property tax purposes on public
utilities and carriers, including telecommunications
providers, electric, gas and water utilities, pipeline
companies, railroads, airlines, barge lines, cable
television providers, motor carriers, and bus lines.
