The Snohomish PUD put out notice today that people may experience some sticker shock upon seeing their power bills for February and March.

Here’s what they had to say:

Why is Your March PUD Bill Higher?

Your March bill may be higher than recent months for a couple of reasons:

February was the coldest February on record. This meant electric furnaces and heaters had to work harder to heat your home even if you never increased your thermostat temperature settings.

Your February bill may have been estimated. Consecutive heavy snow storms made it impossible for our meter readers to safely access customer meters for several days. When that happens, we estimate your bill using past usage history for the month we are unable to read your meter and then “true up” the next month using an actual read. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please contact Customer Service with any questions. The number is (425) 783-1000, Mon – Fri 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM.
