As a provider of an essential service, we are working to ensure we are here for our customers, our community and our employees as coronavirus impacts the region.

With Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington county-by-county phased re-opening approach, PSE is gradually returning maintenance and construction crews back into the field and offices. PSE’s highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and communities. As such, we continue to adhere to current CDC guidance regarding COVID-19 while working in our community.

We are requiring our employees to maintain physical distancing while working in the field and offices. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

Green Power Community Support Grant

Overview

Up to $1,000,000 in competitive grant funding is available to support the installation of solar electric projects on non-profit, public housing authority, and tribal facilities in PSE’s electric service area. This grant is funded through PSE’s Green Power customers to bring local, community-oriented solar projects to PSE’s electric service area, while providing support to those in need through lower utility bills for our low-income or Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and the organizations that serve them. Over the last three years, PSE’s Green Power program has provided nearly $1,400,000 in grant funding to a combination of 20 local organizations, resulting in almost 600 kW of renewable energy
