COVID-19 Payment Assistance Program

Columbia REA understands that for some of our members, the COVID-19 outbreak has caused financial hardship due to loss of income. As a member-owned electric cooperative, we want to work with you if you feel like you might struggle to pay your electric bill now or in the future. Currently, we are offering assistance through the following resources:


  1. Connect you with the Blue Mountain Action Council (BMAC) Energy Assistance Program.
  2. Set up a payment plan that will fit with your current financial situation.
  3. Allow you to access your capital credits, which is your investment in the co-op, to pay your current bill (calculated at net present value).


If you would like to learn more about these payment options, please call our office at 509-526-4041 or email us at


We are here to serve you.
