Carbon Balance Program Resource Information

The carbon offsets for PSE's Carbon Balance Program are sourced from a waste heat capture project in Culbertson County, Montana.

How does it work?

Waste heat capture recovers heat energy, which heats a thermal oil and is then transferred and used to vaporize a fluid that expands to drive the turbines, which in turn drive a generator. This project produces zero emissions on a net basis and uses zero fuel, as it is entirely powered by a waste stream.
