About Northern Wasco County PUD
Northern Wasco County People's Utility District is a customer-owned utility that provides nearly 25,000 people and businesses with electricity in Wasco County, Oregon. As our name implies, people are what we are all about.
We take great pride in providing quality electric service at some of the lowest rates in Oregon, the Northwest, and the nation. The 40-plus employees who work at the utility greet each customer with a friendly smile and provide prompt, efficient, and courteous service. Our customers experience few power outages because our electrical system is well maintained.
Nearly all the electricity needed to serve our customers is purchased from the federal Bonneville Power Administration, which serves several dozen public utilities in the Northwest with low-cost electricity. Northern Wasco PUD also has two hydroelectric power generation projects that supplement our BPA power.
