Downloading and Converting

The PUC publishes files in a variety of formats. Some of these files may require additional software. Any additional software necessary can be found from the links below and is free.

Office Online File Converters and Viewers
Installing a Microsoft Converter or Viewer will allow you to read Word or Excel files if you have an older version of the respective program or if you do not have Microsoft applications at all.
Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
These files can be accessed by downloading and installing the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Once the Reader is installed the files can be viewed directly from your browser.
