Even though the Puget Sound region is known for cool, gray days, solar energy in the Pacific Northwest has a lot of potential. That's because the power comes from light, not heat. And it's catching on! In 2015, Washington's installed capacity for solar grew by 85 percent[i] over the previous year.

However, installing solar at home isn't right for everyone. For such customers we offer Solar Choice, a way to match some or all of the power you use with clean solar energy. You won't have any solar panels on your home. Instead, solar energy generated at a separate location will be added to the power grid on your behalf.

Solar Choice


*Carbon footprint reduction based on the difference between the PSE Solar Choice 2018 mix and Year 2017 PSE fuel mix. **Based on the average PSE customer usage of 1,000 kWh/mo.


Solar Choice is 100% solar power generated right here in Washington and neighboring Idaho. These independently owned solar projects are adding clean energy to the grid, every day – rain or shine!
