Public Utilities Commissions in Kings County, California

Kings County Utilities must receive approval for the rates they charge and they are also required to demonstrate to the Kings County Public Services Commission that they have plans to maintain an infrastructure capable of supporting current and future demand for services.

Electric Utilities

Only one system for transmitting and delivering electricity to customers is feasible in a given service area such as Kings County, CA.

However, the electricity in the Kings County electric grid may come from numerous suppliers.

Sewer Utilities

Kings County Sewer Service Companies receive wastewater from customers via sanitary sewers at a wastewater treatment plant. The Sewer Utility treats the wastewater to reduce pollutants before it is released into Kings County waterways.
