You may wonder why there are extra charges included on your bill. Trinity PUD strives to keep rates as low as possible; we ask our customers to pay for the additional costs associated with performing extra work. This way we don't have to pass on those expenses to other customers in the form of higher rates. As an example, if a customer forgets to pay their bill, Trinity PUD has to track the account and make sure that the late payment is made. Instead of passing these additional costs onto all Trinity PUD customers by raising our electric rates, we attempt to collect from the customers who require the extra work.
Below is a list of some of the additional fees that may be included in your bill if there is extra handling is required.
