General Rate Case Statement
Puget Sound Energy filed a request with the Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) on June 20, 2019 to increase rates for gas and electric customers so PSE can continuing making strides in providing clean, reliable energy. This filing will allow PSE to accelerate the shutdown of coal-based energy and make investments in a modern grid that can accommodate high levels of residential solar, battery storage and electric vehicle penetration. Customers also want user-friendly, self-service tools that allow them to interact with PSE at their convenience. This filing includes key technology investments that will continue to increase customer satisfaction and allow PSE to keep pace with the digital transformation that is impacting all industries.
While this filing will result in an increase to immediate rates for both gas and electric customers, the proposed rates are comparable to what PSE customers paid in 2013. Like all rate filings, the proposal will go through a thorough and open process at the UTC. For complete details, please visit pse.com.
