High Density Loads

Questions about High Density Loads?

Here are some Rate 35 HDL FAQs regarding the Rate and the process to follow to establish a new or expanding service.

On Monday, July 18, 2016, Chelan County PUD commissioners approved a new electric rate for customers with high density loads (HDL) such as server farms or similar technology operations. Rate Schedule 35, effective Jan. 1, 2017, and includes an upfront charge to offset impacts from new or expanding HDL customers. The action follows 18 months of analysis and gathering public comment. The rate structure is expected to recover the fair and reasonable costs of serving these rapidly growing businesses. 

Links to the presentations given over the past 18 months are provided below.
