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.
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.
A free community dinner is the highlight of our Public Power Week celebration. We also hold a week-long open house at our office in Deer Island.
When: Tuesday of Public Power Week from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Where: Columbia County Event Complex
Seating is limited and tickets are required. Tickets are available for pick-up at our office beginning September 1st. Limit 6 per customer, please.
