Public Utilities Commissions in Sanger, California

In California, Utilities are regulated by the Fresno 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 Sanger consumers receive safe, reliable, and reasonably priced services from competent and financially viable companies. Sanger Utilities must receive approval for the rates they charge and they are also required to demonstrate to the Sanger Public Services Commission that they have plans to maintain an infrastructure capable of supporting current and future demand for services.

Electric Utilities

Sanger 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 Fresno County, CA. Therefore, transmission and distribution of electricity operates as a monopoly and customers do not have a choice when selecting their Sanger electric power company. However, the electricity in the Sanger electric grid may come from numerous suppliers.

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

Sewer Utilities

Sanger 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 Fresno County waterways.

Natural Gas Utilities

Sanger 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.
