The Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) is a constitutionally established regulatory agency dedicated to serving the public interest by assuring safe, reliable and reasonably priced services are provided by the public utilities and common carriers subject to its jurisdiction. As outlined by Article IV, Section 21 of the Louisiana Constitution of 1974, the LPSC consists of five elected Commissioners who serve overlapping six-year terms, as well as central and district office staffs.
The LPSC strives to ensure a regulatory balance that allows regulated utilities and common carriers an opportunity to earn a fair rate of return on their investments while also ensuring customers are provided safe, adequate and reliable service, at rates that are just and reasonable, equitable and economically sound.

PSC visitors who are conducting state business will be allowed to park at the Galvez Garage at no charge. Effective April 17, 2023, the Galvez parking garage implemented a new payment/validation system. Guests of the Commission are no longer required to obtain a ticket upon entering the garage, but instead can either scan a QR code located within the garage to pay for parking, or request validation from the Commission. Please note, in order to validate a vehicle the guest must know the license plate of the vehicle being validated. Parking validation must be done within 30 minutes after entering the garage. Failure to do so will result in a parking citation. You can find answers to common questions associated with the new system at Parking Validation FAQs
