At the February 6th meeting of Lewis County PUD’s Commissioners, the Commissioners approved a rate increase effective March 1st. The daily charge will not increase. The energy, or kilowatt-hour charge, will increase 4% across all rate classes. Factors for the rate increase include: wholesale power price increases from Bonneville Power Administration; steadily increasing compliance requirements with legislative mandates and voter-approved initiatives such as Initiative 937 –the Energy Independence Act, and increases in operating costs to ensure a reliable electrical system.
