The Kentucky Public Service Commission is a three member administrative body with quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial duties and powers regulating over 1,500 utilities. It is funded by an assessment paid by all utilities under the Commission's jurisdiction based on a utility's annual gross intrastate revenues.

The Commission, created by the Acts of the 1934 General Assembly, the current version of which forms Chapter 278 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS), performs its regulatory functions through issuance of written orders, following adjudicative and rulemaking procedures outlined in Chapter 278 and administrative regulations promulgated by the Commission in Chapter 807 of the Kentucky Administrative Regulations (KAR).

The mission of the Kentucky Public Service Commission is to foster the provision of safe and reliable service at a reasonable price to the customers of jurisdictional utilities while providing for the financial stability of those utilities by setting fair and just rates, and supporting their operational competence by overseeing regulated activities.
