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.

Wind providing 10% of PSE power supply
Our three wind farms today are meeting about 10 percent of our customers’ total electricity needs. Until spring 2012, PSE sold the excess green-energy attributes generated by our wind facilities to other entities across the nation. The revenue from these sales helped to reduce our customers' power costs. Because we sold these "renewable energy credits," the electricity produced by our wind-power facilities is not included as "renewable" energy in our latest official power-supply mix as reported by the state of Washington.
