Our Strategic Plan

THANK YOU to the thousands of customers who thoughtfully responded to our Strategic Planning survey this summer!

 This effort was designed to guide the utility over the next five years as we strive to meet our vision to provide the Best Value, for the Most People, for the Longest Time

We’ve read all your responses and comments and here you’ll see a draft of our 2020-2024 Strategic Plan.

Draft Plan

We plan to host two open houses to solicit comments and answer questions about the draft plan and we welcome your attendance:


  • Sept. 5 - 6 p.m., Confluence Technology Center, 285 Technology Center Way, Wenatchee
  • Sept. 9 - 5:30 p.m., Chelan PUD Leavenworth Office, 222 Chumstick Hwy., Leavenworth

The Chelan PUD Board of Commissioners will also accept public comments on the draft Strategic Plan via email through Sept. 11, and at their Sept. 16 meeting. Commissioners are likely to consider adoption of the final plan on Oct. 7. 

Thank you again for your participation and interest.

2015-2019 Strategic Plan

In October of 2013, Chelan County PUD began a conversation with our customer-owners about how our actions as a public power utility could enhance the quality of their lives. This was a new chapter in our journey toward achieving the "ideal" of public power’s commitment to service, stewardship, and customer satisfaction.

Chelan PUD exists because our customer-owners had a vision more than 75 years ago to create this utility and entrust it to a locally-elected Board of Commissioners. The vision for this effort was defined by our Board of Commissioners, who recognized this strategic planning effort as a potentially historic opportunity for the entire county to make informed choices about the future direction of this utility. We began by asking a simple question: How could we create the best value, for the most people, for the longest period of time? Because we work for our customer-owners, we believed this question should be answered by everyone.
