There are two tools in eDockets, eDocket Search and eFiling. They have different functions and access requirements.
eDockets is the online system used by the Department of Commerce and the Public Utilities Commission to store and display the documents that make up the official public record in energy and telecommunications cases. There are two tools in eDockets, eDocket Search and eFiling. They have different functions and access requirements.
eFiling is the required tool to use to file official documents (initial filings, comments, correspondence, etc.) for dockets before the Public Utilities Commission. Most of these documents are filed by companies or organizations which have an interest in a particular case before the PUC. For example, a utility company must file a request to seek a rate increase. An interest group might file documents supporting, opposing, or seeking adjustments to that request.
