Bill Payment Programs

Automatic Payments (E-Z Pay)

E-Z Pay allows you to electronically transfer your payment from your bank account. Each month, we automatically deduct your bill from a checking or savings account of your choice. For your records, you will receive a copy of your electric bill showing your usage and the amount to be deducted.

E-Z Pay isn’t just easy to use, it also saves you time and worry, not to mention the cost of a stamp. Plus, it gives you peace of mind if you’re traveling, become ill, or simply forget to pay.

To set up E-Z Pay, call our office at (541) 296-2226, or just fill out the E-Z Pay Enrollment Form (PDF) and either mail the form or bring it into our office at 2345 River Road, The Dalles, OR 97058 from 7:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday. Get directions to our office.

Budget Payment Plan

The Budget Payment Plan (PDF) distributes the cost of your electric service in equal monthly payments throughout the year. Under this plan, a customer pays a set amount each month instead of the amount listed on the bill.

This option is a 12-month billing plan beginning in May of each year. To qualify, you must:

  • Be a customer of the PUD
  • Have lived at your current residence for at least 12 months
  • Have no outstanding balance on your account prior to your May billing

You can sign up for this plan in March or April by completing this Budget Payment Plan Enrollment Form (PDF). After signing up, you will receive a notification letter advising you of your monthly payment. The monthly amount is calculated based on previous usage patterns.

Call our office at (541) 296-2226 to find out more or to sign up for our Budget Payment Plan.
