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.

Electricity needed to serve our customers is purchased from the federal Bonneville Power Administration and other public and private utilities in the Northwest that provide low-cost electricity from hydroelectric generation.  Northern Wasco PUD also owns and operates two hydroelectric power generation projects.
