In the beginning, a public
utility district was conceived in 1930 in the southern part of the
county. On November 1932, Pacific County P.U.D. #1 was approved by a majority
vote, but was not activated. In 1935, the Pacific County Pomona Grange led a
drive for either of two options: the extension of the first district or the
creation of a second county-wide district. The county-wide district was
approved in a landslide election on November 1936. Business for Pacific County
P.U.D. #2 started on March 1940. Lines were officially energized from BPA on
October 30,1940. With a utility valued at $690,000 the District began servicing
4,800 customers. From this small beginning in 1940, the system now serves
nearly 17,000 residential, commercial, industrial and irrigation customers
throughout Pacific County.
