NASUCA is an association of 44 consumer
advocates in 40 states, the District of Columbia and Barbados.
NASUCA's members are designated by the laws of their respective
jurisdictions to represent the interests of utility consumers
before state and federal regulators and in the courts.
NASUCA member offices operate independently
from the regulatory commissions in their states and are
designated by state law to act as ratepayer advocates.
Some are separately established utility advocate organizations,
others are divisions of larger departments, such as the
Office of Attorney General.
NASUCA members, through actions before state and federal
courts and regulatory agencies, have saved consumers billions
of dollars in utility costs and established important consumer
rights and legal precedents.
NASUCA members represent the concerns
of utility consumers by testifying before Congress and
federal regulatory agencies; arguing before state and
federal courts on matters concerning utility rates; and
by speaking for consumers in a variety of other forums.
NASUCA offers lawmakers and regulators
policy choices and raises public awareness of utility
