PSE COVID-19 Response

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.

We know some of our business and residential customers might be worried about paying their bills. Here are measurable actions we’ve taken on behalf of our customers:

  • PSE will not be disconnecting customers for non-payment during this time.
  • During Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” order, PSE will only respond to emergency and make-safe situations which require restoration of power or natural gas such as: outages, natural gas leaks/odors, and low-hanging wire. We will also be working to support the essential facilities and services as listed in Governor Inslee’s critical infrastructure throughout our community.
  • PSE will work with our customers on options such as payment plans and choosing a new bill due date.
  • PSE has an energy assistance portal to facilitate access to funds available to income qualified customers.
  • PSE is requiring our employees to maintain social distancing while working in the field. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

PSE Covid-19 Response

Fridge and freezer recycling



Due to the ongoing concerns around COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, we will only be providing curbside pickup for the Appliance Recycling program for the time being. With the Canadian border closure, we are unable to offer service to Point Roberts. If you are unable to place your appliance outside your home or are a Point Roberts resident, please call our recycling vendor, ARCA Recycling Inc., at 1-877-577-0510 to explore other options during this time. We will however, continue to process new and existing incentive applications for our rebated offers. We will resume all services when we can safely do so. Thank you for your understanding.
