PSE: a leader in delivering clean, renewable energy

Puget Sound Energy is the Pacific Northwest's largest utility producer of renewable energy. We own and operate three large wind farms in Washington state: the Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility in Kittitas County; the Hopkins Ridge Wind Facility in Columbia County; and our third and largest wind operation, the Lower Snake River Wind Facility, in Garfield County.

Our three current wind facilities produce up to 773 megawatts of electricity, enough to meet the power demands of approximately 230,000 homes, making us the second-largest utility generator of wind power in the U.S.

The three large wind farms we built and operate generate enough power, on average, to serve nearly a quarter-million homes. In some cases, PSE sells the excess green-energy attributes generated by our wind facilities to other entities across the nation. The revenue from these sales helps to reduce our customers’ power costs and allows other utilities to take advantage of the benefits of renewable energy.
