Commercial Pricing

2022 Pricing

After five years of stable prices, rising costs of operations and the need to repair aging infrastructure required an increase in the price of water and electric services. The EWEB Board of Commissioners approved the final 2022 budget and prices at the Dec. 7, 2021 public meeting. New prices were effective Feb. 1, 2022.

The following are price changes for 2022 based on the Board's strategic and operational guidance, economic assumptions, and proposed capital investments. 

Electric 2022: 

  • Small General Service 3.7% increase
  • Medium General Service 3.7% increase
  • Large General Service 6% increase

Water 2022:

  • General Service 5% increase

As a business customer, your electric pricing depends on your annual peak demand. Your water pricing depends on the size of the installed meter and whether your business is located inside or outside of the city limits of Eugene. 



Understanding how to read your bill is a good way to manage your electricity and water usage.

Details of electric and water prices are provided below.

Watershed Recovery Fee

In 2021, EWEB Commissioners approved a new program that will pay for wildfire restoration projects in the McKenzie watershed through a temporary flat fee assessed to customer water bills. 

The community-funded watershed recovery and restoration initiative will supplement EWEB's McKenzie River Source Protection Program to safeguard drinking water for Eugene residents. Working with McKenzie River Trust, McKenzie Watershed Council, and other Pure Water Partners, we are addressing immediate risks such as erosion from high burn areas and redevelopment along the river, as well as longer-term resiliency investments to restore floodplain areas that are critical to water quality and habitat. The Watershed Recovery Fee is effective July 2021 and will be in place for 60 months (5 years), at which time it will automatically sunset.

For most residential and business customers, the fee is a flat $3 per month (based on a 1-inch or smaller water meter). Some customers, such as large businesses and those with extensive irrigation needs, pay more ($4.50 to $30 per month) based on meter size.
