Processing Time

Please contact us at least 48 business hours before the effective date. While Emerald PUD strives to provide next-day service, occasionally additional time is needed.


A deposit may be required to start your account.  Deposits are calculated using the energy consumption history for the service address.  The amount will be two times the highest bill from the previous 12 months.

For your protection, we must verify your identity before establishing an account.  A soft credit check will be processed to verify your identification and determine if a deposit will be added to your account.  The credit check will not impact your credit score.
