Chelan PUD Wants Your Input On 5-Year Strategic Plan, Public Benefit Program

Several years ago, the Chelan PUD conducted a survey to help shape a strategic plan. And it’s time once again to take another survey.

In 2015, the Chelan County PUD adopted a five-year strategic plan after a public outreach process with its customer-owners. The purpose was to identify how the PUD’s actions could accomplish their mission statement to enhance the quality of life in Chelan County.

Once again, the PUD is calling upon its customer-owners to provide informed input and guidance as the Chelan PUD charts out its next 5-year strategic plan.

Justin Erickson, Chelan PUD District Services Director, joins KOHO 101 to break it down.

    The PUD management needs to remember their ratepayers. Social engineering should not be a focus of the PUD. Implementing programs with ratepayer funds that DO NOT benefit ALL ratepayers should not be a part of any PUD program. By definition, programs directed at specific groups (park programs, restricted rebates, building electric recharging stations, etc.), are inequitable, a supposed hallmark of PUD management. It is not up to the PUD management to spend “excess” ratepayer funds “for the ‘benefit’of its ratepayers”; any such funds should be returned to the ratepayres or used to further reduce PUD utility costs, primarily the cost of electricity, which benefits ALL ratepayers.

    These are great programs but do not seem to be publicized enough. I just learned about the daily passes available to us, the PUD customer base. I also would like to see some of the vast lands that the PUD holds being more available to us as well as maps that clearly show what is legal to do and how to responsibly use them.
