New Electric Rates in Effect March 1st

In response to the BPA’s Oct. 2017 5.4% increase to our wholesale power rates (the PUD’s largest single expense, accounting for 46% of our annual budget), the Jefferson County PUD Board of Commissioners approved corresponding increases to the PUD’s retail electric service rates. The new rates are printed on the front of this month’s bill and the full list of rate changes are also available on our website.To help offset the impacts of these rate increases to our low income ratepayers, the commissioners also raised the low income credit from $35 to $39.50 per month and raised the low income eligibility limit to 150% of the federal poverty level, up from 125% previously. Contact us soon if you are eligible because of this change.
