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 8 am to 5 pm weekdays.

Budget Payment Plan

A Budget Payment Plan 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.  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.
