    Public Power Week

    Jordan Lee poses for a picture with Captain Public Power, Kevin Engstrom, during our Customer Appreciation Dinner.More than 2,000 communities in the United States light up their homes and businesses with “public power”— electricity that comes from a community-owned utility. Each public power utility reflects its own hometown characteristics and values, but all have a common purpose: providing safe, reliable electricity at a reasonable price.

    We’re Public Power

    Your PUD is a community-owned utility. A locally elected Board of Directors guides us in our mission to deliver quality services and low rates. We are here to serve you, and we’re proud to have saved customers millions of dollars through lower rates since we began providing service in 1984.
