Sixty years ago, the PUD purchased its electric system from Puget Sound Power & Light. What started as a customer base of 38,000 in 1949 has grown to nearly 318,000 customers today. And while many changes have occurred in the past 60 years, one thing remains constant. Snohomish County PUD was formed by the people and for the people. Providing residents and businesses with reliable, quality electrical service remains its number one priority.
As it looks to the future, the PUD is committed to meeting customer growth by promoting conservation and maintaining a diverse mix of clean, renewable energy sources. By focusing on ways to help customers use energy more efficiently in homes and businesses, the utility can reduce the need to acquire additional energy resources. By developing renewable energy sources, including solar, tidal, geothermal, low-impact hydropower and wind, the PUD can continue to operate in a way that minimizes environmental impacts in the region.
