We want to make your experience of moving in or moving out as easy as possible.
You can call us or stop by any of our offices to set up an account or stop service.
Protecting your personal information and credit is very important to us.
A credit application helps us determine if a deposit is needed from new customers. This also helps prevent unauthorized changes to an account. Federal Law (the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) requires us to use rigorous measures to identify, detect, and lessen the chance of identity theft.
You can find PUD 3's Service Rules & Regulations in the Document Archives.
For Residential Customers
We charge $20.00 to set up a residential account. We may ask for a security deposit or proof of home ownership. After 12 months of good credit, deposits are applied to the account.
For Commercial Customers
Commercial customers are charged $20.00 to open an account. Commercial customers must also sign a guarantee, which makes them personally responsible for electrical bills on the account. They must also provide a satisfactory commercial letter of credit and/or a security deposit. The deposit may be set as high as an amount that will equal an estimate of two average bills combined.
