Whidbey has three unincorporated population centers, Clinton, Freeland,and Greenbank, and three incorporated towns, Langley, Coupeville, and Oak Harbor.
Island County offices are open Monday through Friday. You're likely to get an answering machine for most departments. Leave a message; they'll call back.
The links below are for the government entities on Whidbey that maintain websites.

Power and Gas
Power is the easiest utility to order here, because just one company services the entire island: Puget Sound Energy. Here's a link to their connection page.
Puget Sound Energy
PSE also manages the natural gas main to Oak Harbor. A lot of us like to cook with gas, but live outside of Oak Harbor. We manage with propane tanks and scheduled deliveries.
Here's a bit of information that you might find helpful: If you lease propane tanks, you'll be married to the provider. Other vendors will be prohibited from filling the tanks. If you purchase your own equipment, you'll be able to buy propane from anyone who sells it.
Clinton, Langley, Coupeville, and Oak Harbor operate public water systems. The rest of the water on Whidbey comes from community or private wells. (A well requires a one hundred foot radius circle of undeveloped land, so you won't find a private well on a small parcel.)
You'll find information about community wells here. You'll need to enter the name of a water system. If the name seems right, it probably is (Scatchet Head, Deer Lake, Beverly Beach).
Our public water systems are listed below. If you're moving to the island, your Dalton real estate professional will tell you whom to contact for your water hook-up.

In this case, "Wastewater" is a polite way of saying "Sewer." We have four of them on Whidbey, in Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Langley, and the Holmes Harbor Golf and Yacht Club. If you're purchasing a Holmes Harbor home, you can connect to the sewer district by calling them at 360.331.4636. The municipal systems have web pages, listed below.
