2017 Rate Information

Effective October 1, 2017 Benton PUD implemented a 1.9 percent retail rate increase for all customer classes.  The increase is directly attributed to the Bonneville Power Administration’s (BPA’s) 5.4 percent average wholesale rate increase effective the same day.  BPA is the primary provider of power to Benton PUD and its customers.
For a Benton PUD residential customer, the increase will be applied to the residential daily system charge which would increase from 55 cents per day to 62 cents per day, or $2.10 in a 30-day month.  The residential rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh) will remain the same. 
The average residential bill will increase from approximately $113.40 to $115.50, or about 1.9 percent.
