Payment Standards & Utility Allowances

April 1, 2020

Every year, THA reviews its utility allowances. During this review, THA must determine if new rates will change THA’s utility allowances.

Through a partnership with Tacoma Public Utilities (TPU), THA has been able to collect regular updates to electrical consumption and rates. This allows THA to regularly update its own schedule using a rolling average of local data.
