  • PUD Low-Income & Senior Energy Assistance Available

    In the coming year, energy assistance programs offered by Snohomish County Public Utility District will help about 17,000 senior citizens and low-income customers struggling with their electric bills. The programs currently provide reductions of 20 percent, 40 percent, or 60 percent off PUD electric and water bills. The discount percentage that customers receive depends on their income level.

    Currently, the low-income discount is available to PUD customers who have a household annual income that is below 125 percent of the federal poverty level ($30,313 for a family of four). Also eligible for discounts are senior citizens who are 62 years of age or older and have a combined disposable annual income of less than $28,264.
