Electric Rate Increase Effective April 1, 2015
The 2015 PUD budget was approved by PUD Commissioners on December 15, 2014. The budget is predicated on the following rate increases: electric retail rate increase of 3.5% effective on all bills rendered on or after April 1, 2015; a 6% retail water rate increase effective on all bills rendered on or after January 1, 2015; and, a 6% sewer rate increase effective on all bills rendered on or after January 1, 2015.
For electric utility customers, a 3.5% increase in retail electric utility rates amounts to an increase of approximately $3.35 per month for the average PUD residential customer, using 1200 kWh per month. For water utility customers, a 6.0% rate increase will result in approximately $2.50 more per month on the average bill. Sewer customers will see an increase of approximately $2.40 per month on their average bill.
For additional information about the rate increases please see the December 5, 2014 media release.
