Electric Rates

The City of Ashland Electric Department is a publicly owned electric utility with the responsibility of serving the public's needs for power, a responsibility held since 1908.

Power for the City of Ashland is purchased from the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), metered at distribution substations and dispersed through City-owned feeder and distribution lines, transformers and meters. The Department is responsible for the engineering, construction and maintenance of the system for distribution of electrical energy.

Electric Users Tax

  • A 25% tax is added to all electric accounts. This tax is put into the general fund to support other city services. The revenue generated from the use of electricity is put into the budget of the Department of Electricity and is used to offset the running and generating of electric power.
