Meter Replacement, Infrastructure Improvements and More.

Infrastructure Improvement Program:

Since taking over the power grid from PSE in April of 2013, your Jefferson County PUD has invested millions of dollars and countless hours to repair and improve our county’s aging electrical infrastructure. Much of this money has gone to fix or replace older worn and or failing components. Other dollars have been spent to bring our systems into the 21st century. All of these investments have been made with the goal of providing better service and increased reliability for our 19,000 customers. more…

Meter Replacement Project

Jefferson County PUD is constantly upgrading and improving its electrical distribution system to provide our customers the best and most reliable service available. When the PUD assumed maintenance of the electrical grid from PSE in 2013, we inherited a hodge-podge system of meters in various state of repair and disrepair. We replace about 450 of these failing meters per year. We also inherited a $300K/yr contract for data transmission that accompanied some, but not all, of the more recently repaired meters. In order to improve service, reliability, and reduce contractual expenses, PUD plans to replace our existing meters with single brand of advanced made by a Washington based company. more…

Jefferson County PUD’s Meter Replacement plans will also be discussed at an upcoming Board of Directors Special Meeting on Oct 30th. Public comment and questions are welcome.
