The service has always been great! I've never had a problem except for the amount charged per kilowatt-h
our. We pay just over double what Wasco County customers... pay, it's very frustratin g. I have never received answers to why we are so much higher than just right across the river from me. We are the poorest county in the state of Washington so answers would be helpful. Also, I went through the PUD when I purchased my high efficiency heat pump and furnace. I did the same for when I installed new vinyl windows. Wasco County was offering a $5,000 rebate for a high efficiency heat pump and furnace, I received a $500 rebate from KPUD. Anything helps I guess but, I'm just curious on who sets these rates and why are we so high?

The bottom of my bill says to "take our customer survey" and go to the website or Facebook page. I went to both and looked all over and can not find anything a...bout a survey. ??? A new rule was put into the policies and about how rates are charged to RV parks???. I asked Laurie to send me a copy, been over a month and still nothing. Have called with a few different questions and every time I talk to the employees there especially
Laurie, I get a different answer. So confusing and inconsiste nt.

Reading the recent article on the high electric bills which we have had to endure this winter, (It aint over yet either) I was hoping to find some encouragin
g n...ews, as far as relief for the thousands of customers, some on hard times, some on fixed incomes, and the 'working poor'. Instead, I was disappoint ed in the content, and the rhetoric of our monopolist ic energy provider. Sure, it's winter, expect to see higher bills. But to merely mention the minor 3% increase last year, as a contributi ng factor, minimizes the reality of why our bills have become astronomic al. There have been several rate increases since 2012. Effective October 1st, 2012 KPUD electric rates have increased by 7% with an additional 5% increase to take place April 1st, 2013. a 9% across-the -board electric rate hike, effective in June 2015, a 3% electric rate hike on Jan. 1, 2016, and a 3% increase on July 1, 2016. And I think I'm missing at least one other increase. The informatio n is hard to de-cipher. All told, that is a whopping 27% rate increase over the last 4 years. The fat cats are getting rich off the backs of their loyal subjects. These monopolist ic parasites should be ashamed. Enough is enough. With this recent 'windfall' , I think, at the very least, a rebate to the good citizens of Klickitat County, is due!
