About Your Bill
BudgetPay, our level billing plan, takes the guesswork out of managing your energy bill. Instead of rising and falling with the seasons, level billing means you know exactly how much your electric bill is going to be each and every month. (The monthly Budget Pay amount may require adjustments based on changes in a customer's power consumption and energy prices.)
To sign up, call us at (509) 766-2505. We’ll calculate your monthly BudgetPay amount and get your account set up. Then you can decide how to pay it each month, including having it automatically withdrawn with our ePay feature.

About your meter
Grant PUD’s new advanced meters use a digital display that shows you the amount of kilowatt hours used, right on the screen. This allows for the most accurate reads possible and gives you more information on your power usage.
Our new advanced meters are digital and display accumulated power use in total kilowatt hours. You read them they way you would any number, from left to right.
A meter is like the odometer in your car. It displays accumulated power use over time. To check what you use in a billing cycle, take a reading on the first and last days of your billing cycle and subtract for that cycle's total energy use.
Note: even though our customers now have advanced meters, we may still need access to the meter. Please keep your meter accessible, so our personnel can have safe access in the event they need to reach the meter.

Scam artists are increasingly targeting utility customers
Scammers posing as Grant PUD employees occasionally call our customers and threaten to shut off the power unless an immediate payment is made.
If you receive such a call, hang up, then call Grant PUD Customer Service at 509-766-2505 to verify the legitimacy of the call. Some scammers can even make an incoming call appear as though it is Grant PUD on their caller ID. These scams are a nationwide problem.
If you receive such a call:
Hang up and call our customer service number, 509-766-2505.
Always verify the legitimacy of a caller
Never provide any personal information such as credit card numbers, banking information, or Social Security number until you have verified the call is from Grant PUD.
Be cautious and aware of other tactics
Sometimes criminals pose as utility employees to gain access inside your home. Since your meter is on the outside of your home, we rarely need go inside. Never let anyone who claims to be from Grant PUD inside your home without proper identification. Call us to verify the need for the person to be in your home. If anything appears suspicious, call 911.
