Public Power Week

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.

Celebrate Public Power Week with Us – October 3-6, 2022

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. Stop by to see us and grab a cookie, coffee, or other goodies.

Free Customer Appreciation Dinner – October 4, 2022


We will once again hold a sit-down spaghetti dinner this year after two years of drive-through dinners. We invite you to join us at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Pavilion on Tuesday, October 4.

The dinner is free for our customers, but you must have a ticket. Tickets will be limited to 500. You may pick one up at our office.
