PUD invites you to vote on names for its new squirrel mascots

Earlier this year, customers helped Snohomish County PUD choose two squirrels as the new PUD mascots. Now the PUD needs customers to help name them.

Customers are being asked to vote on your favorite squirrel names from the options below:

  • Zip and Zap
  • Sparky and Watt
  • Douglas (Doug) Fir Squirrel and Ponderosa (Rosa) Pine Squirrel
  • Volt and Watt
  • Stanley and Stella

Please vote on your squirrel names by visiting www.snopud.com/mascot.

“We want to thank all of the customers that voted in our mascot contest in late 2021,” said Julee Cunningham, director of communications, marketing and business readiness. “We can’t wait to see what you choose to name our squirrels. We’re really looking forward to getting our two bushy-tailed mascots out in the world educating children and families about topics such as electrical safety and hydropower generation.”

Once final names have been selected, the PUD will be completing art and costumes for the squirrels, and then the mascots will be launched online and at community events.

Voting will close on May 31.

  1. Mmm . . . . Squirrels and electricity make me think of blown transformers (loud noises) and toasted rodents. Not at all pleasant. Maybe “Toasty” and “Bangy.”

  2. Funny…
    How about Ohms (Holmes) and Watts (Watson)…? I think i’ll send it in. What the heck.
