PUCO announces digital community for annual assessment payment management

COLUMBUS, OHIO (Aug. 17, 2017) – The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) today launched a new online community to allow for regulated entities to efficiently interact with the PUCO regarding annual assessments payments.

“Phase one of the digital community is a huge first step in creating a streamlined and efficient way for the regulated companies to interact with the PUCO,” stated Chairman Asim Z. Haque.

Through this online community users will be able to view certificates, both active and inactive; and view and pay annual assessment invoices.

The goal of the PUCO is to provide a more efficient and transparent process for utilities and company’s required to make annual assessment payments.  In the future, the PUCO intends to provide additional business-friendly functionalities to the online community, including managing certificates of operation, as well as filing reports and paying assessments related to telephone relay service, forecasting and gas pipeline safety.
