This handbook serves as a guide for Skamania County Public Utility District's (PUD) service requirements for new or altered electric service. Updates/additions made to this handbook can be made at any time. It is the customer’s responsibility to comply with PUD guidelines in addition to and all federal, state, local codes (including but not limited to National Scenic Area, USDF, BNSF, etc.).

The customer is responsible for contacting the PUD and requesting a Service Request. Please have the following information available:

  • Service address/Parcel number
  • Mailing address
  • Contact number
  • Email address (if available)
  • Site of new structure is cleared and staked on the property

In order to assist in what service size will be needed, please know the following:

  • What type of building will this electrical service serve (home, barn, shop, etc.)?
  • What is the building’s square footage?
  • What type of electrical or gas appliances will be installed (furnace, heat pump, air conditioning, water heater, vehicle charging, etc.)?
  • Any additional large load installations?

The customer will be required to pay an application fee of $100 for residential (per lot) or $300 for commercial. After the fee has been paid, a Skamania County PUD representative will meet with the customer at the project site to go over the project.
