Snohomish County and PSE, an energetic duo
Snohomish County has a promising future, and we’re proud to be a part of it.
- Our replacement of the poles and transmission lines in Ebey Slough in 2008 facilitated Snohomish County's preservation of the existing marshland and habitat for eagles, blue heron, weasels, beavers, otters, egrets and three threatened species of fish: Chinook salmon, steelhead and bull trout. Considering that 80-90 percent of the historical estuary is gone from the Snohomish River basin, the preservation is significant.
- By participating in our energy efficiency programs, you and your neighbors prevented more than 2 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the environment.
- We are working with Snohomish County and the cities of Edmonds and Everett to maximize the amount and reach of the federal stimulus funds they receive for energy efficiency measures.
- From October 2009 through July 2010, Snohomish County customers who needed help paying their energy bills received more than $1 million in federal and PSE-funded grants through the Snohomish County Human Services Department.
- To empower 6th–8th grade students by showing them how their everyday choices impact the environment, we provided Powerful Choices for the Environment, a science-based educational program to Eisenhower, Lake Stevens, Alderwood, College Place and Meadowdale middle schools.
