About PULP

The Public Utility Law Project (PULP) is dedicated to advancing the interests of low income and rural consumers in energy, telecommunications, and other utility-related matters. PULP represents individuals and groups, and offers educational consulting and support services to other institutions, agencies and advocates serving the poor.

PULP represents the special needs of low income consumers before regulatory agencies where utility rates and policies are set, before state and local social services departments where utility and energy assistance programs are designed and administered, in courts where issues involving utility and energy-related rights and benefits are litigated, and in other forums where utility policy is considered.

PULP also participates in FCC proceedings related to Lifeline rates, develops methods to increase telephone subscribership of low income households, and promotes access to advanced telecommunications services for low income and rural households and communities.
