Participating in the Carbon Balance program lets you reduce your carbon footprint by purchasing third-party verified carbon offsets from local projects that work to reduce or capture greenhouse gases. For as little as $3 a month added to your monthly bill, you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Northwest.
Residential natural gas customers can purchase offset blocks for $3 each. With each block equivalent to removing 400 pounds of carbon dioxide from the environment, the average customer can be carbon neutral for as little as $6 per month.
PSE does not make a profit on the Carbon Balance program.
