Chelan county residents and business can take advantage of several rebates, programs and get help from experts at the PUD. Be sure to check their website if you're renovating or building a home. Business owners can learn more about energy saving options for commercial and industrial buildings and operations.
Visit Chelan PUD's webpage about the Energy Independence Act (I-937) to learn more about how they are working to increase renewable energy and energy conservation.
Douglas County PUD is not required to meet the targets of the Energy Independence Act (I-937) because they serve less than 25,000 customers. Therefore they do not offer rebates and energy conservation services.
