As our region’s corporations and municipalities seek to reduce their planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, they are seeking to add renewable power to their energy portfolio. To meet this need,
PSE created Green Direct, a renewable energy program specifically designed to meet our
This ground-breaking initiative is an effort to provide a dual solution for PSE’s corporate and municipal customers. One that meets both carbon reduction goals, providing them with the ability
to purchase 100 percent of their energy from a dedicated, local, renewable energy resource, while providing them with a stable, cost efficient solution.
Skookumchuck Wind Energy Project
137 megawatts of wind energy will supply power to nearly 30,000 homes
The initial project being developed for the Green Direct program is the Skookumchuck Wind Energy Project. Construction of the project began in 2019 and is on track to come online in 2020. It will produce up to 137 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy. Skookumchuck is being built on Weyerhaeuser timber land, located in Lewis County in southwestern Washington.
A second project for Green Direct, the Lund Hill Solar Project, is under development by Avangrid Renewables in Klickitat County, Washington. At 150 MW, Lund Hill would be the largest solar project in the state.
