Klickitat PUD’s Budget Payment Plan

by May 30, 2018

YOUR MONTHLY BUDGET AMOUNT MAY HAVE CHANGED.  New budget amounts will be reflected on your bill.   ​If you have questions, please give us a call so we can address them. It is important to read your statement and avoid budget adjustment surprises.

YOUR MONTHLY BUDGET AMOUNT MAY HAVE CHANGED. 
New budget amounts will be reflected on your bill. 

If you have questions, please give us a call so we can address them.  It is important to read your statement and avoid budget adjustment surprises.  Your monthly payments are based on energy consumption during the past 12 months for the location. When your budget payment is recalculated, one of the following occurs:
 ~  If you paid for more energy than you used, we recalculate your new budget payment using your credit balance, which may reduce your new budget payment.
~   If you used more energy than you paid for while on the budget plan, your new payment will increase to recover the shortage and account for energy consumption going forward.

Interested in having consistent payments year-round? 
If so, sign up for Klickitat PUD's budget plan to avoid fluctuating power bills.  

You can begin the plan any time your account balance is zero. We recommend June to start building a reserve for winter. 

Will I know how much electricity I use each month?
Your meter will be read as usual. Rural customers should continue providing reads by the 20th of each month. What if I am unable to make a payment? You must pay your budget payment in full by the due date each month. Otherwise, you may be removed from the plan. If you are unable to make your payment, please call customer service.

Can I cancel my budget payment plan?
You can cancel at any time. However, your account will be reconciled at that time. If you have overpaid, you will be credited on your next bill. If you have underpaid, the outstanding balance is due on the next bill.

If you have been removed from the budget payment plan for any reason, you must settle any past due charges before re-enrolling in the plan. There is no charge to participate in the budget payment plan. It is free and strongly encouraged. You can enroll in the automatic draft payment plan at the same time. The services complement one another.

The budget plan does not include non-metered services such as streetlights, yard lights, water or wastewater basic fees. These charges are added to your monthly budget amount. Submit your request online or contact White Salmon’s office at (509) 493-2255 or (800) 493-8385, or the Goldendale office at (509) 773-5891 or (800) 548-8357.
