In 1940 the people of Clallam County voted to establish a Public Utility District, “to reduce rates, to set aside moneys in lieu of taxes, and, through example, to compel the major private electric companies themselves to make rate reductions…”  PUDs are unique in the nation, not-for-profit, by and for the local communities that we serve. The fledgling PUD has since developed three more utilities: water and then sewer, and in 2000 the Legislature authorized PUDs to go into the wholesale telecommunications business. We also help our customers with rebates and incentives towards saving energy. We are fortunate here in Clallam County to have hydropower as the bulk of our power supply for clean, reliable, renewable and affordable power and are 98% carbon-free. No matter how we grow, we continually strive to fulfill our mission: To provide reliable, efficient, safe, and low cost utility services in a financially and environmentally responsible manner.
