February Power Talks: Learn all about rates!< All Stories
Our new Power Talks presentations are a monthly lunchtime conversation with PUD experts designed to bring you more information on topics of interest to many. Each talk will be coming to you virtually using Microsoft Teams. We have a long list of ideas for topics to cover going forward, but the one coming up in February to officially kick this new program off is going to be on that always important topic: rates.
Learn All About Rates at February’s Power Talk
Have you ever wondered about how the PUD determines its rates? It’s not really a mystery but there is a lot to consider, and we’d like to share some of it with you. Get insight as our rates expert, Brian Booth, presents information on how your utility configures rates, where money goes to keep the grid strong and electricity and water flowing, and how rates will be evolving in 2022.
Get to know Brian Booth, PUD Rates Expert
Brian started his career at Cowlitz PUD and the City of Richland before joining the PUD in 2016 as Senior Manager of Rates, Economics and Energy Risk Management. Brian and his team work to keep rates affordable and the PUD’s risk low. He lives in Marysville with his wife and daughters.
“Our team is the mathematical engine that connects the economics of the PUD delivering power to all of our customers to the rates we charge. We work to make rates equitable for residential and business customers alike as well as perform economic forecasts that help us plan for the ever-changing landscape of delivering reliable electricity.” – Brian Booth
