Budget and Rate Information


As a customer-owned utility, EWEB does not operate to earn a profit or to serve the investment needs of stockholders. Prices are based on the costs to serve our community with safe, reliable water and electricity.

EWEB has a solid track record of avoiding rate increases for customers. Electric and water prices have not increased since 2016. During this time, we have been able to maintain funding for limited income programs, conservation, and infrastructure investments.

History of residential prices changes


In recent years we have avoided price increases by managing the costs that we can control, such as delaying or reducing certain capital projects, and restructuring debt. Some costs, such as the price of purchased power, are out of EWEB's control, but smart financial management has allowed EWEB to absorb multiple years of price increases from Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) into the budget without passing along a change to customers.

Our proposed 2022 budget reflects investments to ensure we can continue to provide safe and reliable water and electricity even as critical infrastructure ages and new challenges arise.
