Programs available to benefit Mason PUD 3 customers

Mason PUD 3 customers will benefit from two programs through the state Department of Commerce.

The programs are available to low- and moderate-income households, one featuring bill credits and the other providing expended energy efficient incentives. Funding for both programs is limited and available now.

Under the qualifications, a family of four in Mason County with an income up to $73,450 a year is considered low income. A family of four with an income up to $137,700 per year is considered moderate income. These programs are funded through the Climate Commitment Act.

The Washington Families Clean Energy Grant Program offers $200 to be applied directly to electric bills, appearing as a line item titled “WA Clean Energy Credit.” The program, administered by Promise, is available to low- and moderate-income households as money permits, with priority given to low income.

Apply online at If approved, all credits will be applied to accounts no later than Sept. 15. To apply, customers need to provide their electricity utility account number, the number of people living in the household, and the total gross annual income for 2023 for all adults in the household.

The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates Program expands PUD 3’s current low-income energy efficiency incentives to also be available to moderate-income families. In some cases, the amount of the rebate is enough to cover the full amount of the project.
