We looked like heroes when rotes were 10w. Now rising wer costs make us look awful. liour Snohomish County Public Utility District exists to serve you. We are very proud of the job we do: providing you with reliable elec- tric service at the most reasonable price possible. We share your unhappiness with the recent rapid t~se in etech ic rates. We don't own any hydroelectric generating facilities. We buy our electricity from the Bon- neville Power Administration, the federal agency which markets the power from dams on the Co- lumbia River. Back in the days when BPA was selling the power cheap to us, we sold it cheap to you. As late as 1975, our rates were the very lowest in the entire nation. And we wore a white hat. But in the mid-seventies, BPA began raising its rates. Then came double-digit inflation, the energy crisis and fundamental changes in the basis tor all rate calculation: And BPA raised rates again and again. In huge jumps. Despite our best arguments against these increases, we have had no choice but to pass each raise along to our customers. The last increase came at the end of June. A whopping sixty percent boost. Again, we don't think it's fair, but we are obliged to pass the increase along. What are we doing about the situation? We have purchased an 8% ownership share in the Centralia steam plant which we think will provide new power at less than the BPA rate as early as 1985. We are building our own hydroelectric generat- ing facilities on the Sultan River. We are promot- ing conservation with aggressive cost-effective programs--including low-interest loans. We are encouraging solar energy and low head hydro. And we are participating in the Washington Pub- lic Power Supply System nuclear projects. None o~ these things will return us to the good old days. But amid all the smoke and fury and controversy, it is important to realize that Snohomish County PUD rates are still far less than the national av&age. And hopefully we can keep them that way. Rest assured we'll continue to do our very best to brin~ you the power you need at the lowest possible price and the highest possible degree of reliability and service.
