How to Save Money on Your Lewis County PUD Bill

(Last Updated On: June 22, 2018)

Lewis County PUD offers free audits, payment arrangements and so much more! From initial deposit waivers to free home improvements, we can show you how to get help with your current past-due balance and even save money on future bills!

New customers can waive their initial deposit.

New customers may have their initial service deposit waived. You can do this if you have a good credit history with Lewis County PUD or any other utility. Of course, this good payment history must have occurred within the last 12 months.

A home energy audit and weatherization services can save everyone money.

Everyone can receive a free home energy audit. During the audit, someone from the PUD will analyze your home. They will explain both how the home is losing energy and how you can fix it. This person will also inform you about any free weatherization services or rebates you may qualify for.

Low income households may be eligible for a free weatherization program. In order to qualify, residents must have a household income that doesn’t exceed 200% of the federal poverty standard and must have permanently installed electric heat.

Lewis County PUD offers rebates for weatherization, heat pump conversions and upgrades, EnergyStar appliances, hot water heaters, and qualifying new mobile homes.

If you can’t afford these improvements and you don’t qualify for assistance, you may be able to receive a loan of up to $7,500 for these upgrades. It is important to realize this program is not a grant and must be paid back. It is only available to qualifying customers who have a clean credit rating with the PUD and meet other requirements. A $200 loan origination fee is due at the time of approval.
