Notice of Potential Surplus Electric Energy for Sale

Snohomish County PUD (“PUD”) may, from time to time, have surplus electric energy to sell. Available quantities and prices of surplus energy will vary. The PUD will make such surplus electric energy available under terms consistent with the Bonneville Power Administration’s Policy on Determining Net Requirements of Pacific Northwest Utility Customers under Sections 5(b)(1) and 9(c) of the Northwest Power Act.
