The value of public power

As your public utility district, we are a not-for-profit organization. That means you’re more than a customer. You’re an owner! That makes a big difference in our priorities. We aren’t driven by making profits for shareholders. Instead, we reinvest back in our infrastructure to better serve you.

Our rates are based on cost, not profit

  • The biggest expense for your PUD is purchasing power to serve our customers

Your electricity is a great value!
