PUD electricity rates will go down under a proposal that will be considered by the Snohomish County PUD Board of Commissioners today. The proposed 1 percent rate reduction will be discussed in a public hearing at 9:30 a.m. and is scheduled to be acted upon by the Commission at its afternoon meeting. The rate reduction, to be effective April 1, 1997 would cut PUD customer bills by a total of $2.5 million. An average residential customer would see his or her rate drop by about $8 a year under the new rate. A large industrial customer might save nearly $8,000 a year, according to Andrew Muntz, PUD Customer and Media Relations. Kathy Vaughn, president of the PUD Commission, thanked the utilitys staff for its excellent performance over the past year. Its because of their hard work and the success PUD has had in securing lower cost power that the board, for the first time in over a decade, is able to lower electric rates for its customers, she said. The utility has been able to save money in power purchases because of the new competitive atmosphere in todays power market. We want to pass those savings on to our customers and are planning more rate reductions in the years ahead. The public hearing about the proposed rate reduction will be held at the PUD Headquarters Building.
