Residential Programs

Residential Programs

At the end of the day, all residential users have one thing in common: They need a reliable energy partner who will work with them to keep electric rates affordable. Columbia Water & Light provides incentives for you to be energy efficient because it is good for our community.  You can reduce your utility bills and help the environment.  For the utility, lowering your demand means we purchase less wholesale energy power costs which helps your electric rates stay low.

Columbia Water & Light offers a variety of programs and incentives to help save money and energy. Click below for more information about each of our residential energy efficiency programs:
