PUD holding rate increase meetings
June 25th, 2013 - 5:33am
(Port Angeles) -- Clallam PUD begins a series of presentations on electric rate increases.
This morning at ten the PUD will be at the Sequim Library.
Staff will outline the need for an up to three percent hike in the electric rates across the district.
Commissioner Hugh Haffner says the rate increases are due mainly to increases in wholesale power rates from the Bonneville Power Administration.
But he says the PUD is trying to pass the increase along in smaller, more-regular increases rather than less-frequent larger hikes.
The rate increase was assumed in this year's budget.
The PUD will hold similar rate presentations Thursday at 10 AM at Sekiu Community Center and 1:30 PM in Forks. The final presentation will be July First at 1:30 PM in Port Angeles at the PUD's main office.
