PORT ANGELES — The average residential electricity customer of Clallam County Public Utility District could pay about $6 more per month beginning April 1 under a proposal presented Wednesday morning to PUD commissioners.
Clallam PUD serves about 28,500 electricity customers in Sequim, Forks and the unincorporated areas of Clallam County, plus the Port Townsend Paper Corp. mill.
The proposed rate increase, as well as those for commercial and industrial customers, will be the subject of three public hearings during the next three weeks in unincorporated Port Angeles, Forks and Carlsborg.
The first will be at 1:30 p.m. Monday at Clallam PUD headquarters, 2431 East U.S. Highway 101, east of Port Angeles.
The second will be at 1:30 p.m. March 17 at the state Department of Natural Resources building at 411 Tillicum Lane in Forks.
The third will be at 1:30 p.m. March 24 at the Clallam PUD Operations Center, 110 Idea Place in Carlsborg.
