Budget and Rate Information


As a customer-owned utility, we do 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.

We work hard to control costs and operate as efficiently as possible. For five years, from 2017 - 2021, we were able to maintain funding for valuable limited income assistance programs, conservation incentives, and infrastructure investments without increasing electric and water prices.

In recent years we avoided price increases by managing the costs that we could 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 allowed EWEB to absorb multiple years of price increases from Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) into the budget without passing along a change to customers.

After five years of no increase, rising costs of operations and the need to repair aging infrastructure required an increase in the price of water and electric services in 2022. However, maintaining affordability will always be an important principle.

Our 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.
