Serving Communities with Affordable, Reliable Electricity

PUDs have a long history dating back to the 1930s of providing the communities they serve with safe, reliable electricity at the lowest practical cost. As not-for-profit, community-owned utilities, Washington PUDs are able to offer some of the lowest electric rates in the country, attracting new industries and ensuring existing businesses and industries are able to thrive. In addition, PUDs provide affordable services and programs that help residential customers maintain comfort in their homes.

PUDs are Committed to Clean, Renewable Energy

PUDs are good stewards of the environment. As community-owned utilities, PUDs have a vested interest in preserving the natural beauty and resources in the communities they serve.

PUDs have a long history of promoting conservation as the least-cost and most environmentally friendly resource, offering financial incentives for customers to invest in energy efficiency measures in their homes and businesses. PUDs recognize the value to ratepayers of implementing conservation to meet growing energy demands with the intent of avoiding the cost of developing new generation resources and the potential environmental impacts associated with construction of new facilities.

PUDs recognize the value of powering our communities with clean, renewable, relatively low-cost hydropower. In addition, PUDs have invested in the development of other renewable resources including wind, solar, tidal energy and biomass.
