Public Utilities Commissions in Costa Mesa, California

In California, Utilities are regulated by the Orange County Public Services Commissions or Public Utilities Commission. Public Services Commissions are necessary when monopolies exist or in cases where competition is very limited, to ensure that Costa Mesa consumers receive safe, reliable, and reasonably priced services from competent and financially viable companies. Costa Mesa Utilities must receive approval for the rates they charge and they are also required to demonstrate to the Costa Mesa Public Services Commission that they have plans to maintain an infrastructure capable of supporting current and future demand for services.

Electric Utilities

Costa Mesa Electric Utilities are the most likely to function as a hybrid of monopoly and competitive services. Only one system for transmitting and delivering electricity to customers is feasible in a given service area such as Orange County, CA. Therefore, transmission and distribution of electricity operates as a monopoly and customers do not have a choice when selecting their Costa Mesa electric power company. However, the electricity in the Costa Mesa electric grid may come from numerous suppliers.

Water Utility Services in Costa Mesa provide potable tap water directly to residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional customers through a distribution system.

Sewer Utilities

Costa Mesa 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 Orange County waterways.

Natural Gas Utilities

Costa Mesa Natural Gas Companies are essentially local distribution companies that deliver natural gas, received from large capacity interstate or intrastate pipelines, to individual customers through small diameter distribution pipelines.
