Green power is renewable power. It's power made from resources that are naturally replenishing like sunlight, flowing streams and cool breezes. It's also made from biogas, a by-product of modern living commonly released at dairy farms and landfills. These resources will not run out. They also have dramatically lower pollution rates than fossil fuels.

In addition to supporting clean green power, your home’s electricity-based carbon footprint goes down. For the average home, $10.00 a month is enough to match 100% of your electricity usage.


*Carbon footprint reduction based on the difference between the PSE Green Power mix and Year 2016 PSE fuel mix. Green¬e Energy does not certify or verify carbon emissions claims or methodologies for calculating emissions related to biomass.**Based on the average PSE customer usage of 1,000 kWh/mo.


Any home or business in PSE's electric service area can match some or all of their electricity usage with green power. Participation lowers your carbon footprint with nothing to install or maintain. You just signup and pay a little more each month. The extra cost is added to your bill and the power is added to the grid on your behalf. It is as simple as that. And unlike other clean energy providers, your account information stays right here with PSE.

Why PSE Green Power?

The PSE Green Power team is dedicated to finding power generator “projects” where your extra dollars can do the most good. We look for projects as close to you, the end user, as possible with an eye for providing additional benefits to the independent owners and surrounding communities.

Swauk Wind, Ellensburg
A wind farm whose income sponsors habitat restoration projects and covers property maintenance costs.


LRI Landfill, Graham
An energy generator near Olympia that harnesses the landfill's own biogas before it is released it into the atmosphere.


Nooksack Falls Hydroelectric,
Whatcom County

A low impact hydroelectric project, originally built in 1906, located on the north fork of the Nooksack River.


​Altogether, PSE Green Power participants are supporting dozens of renewable projects located in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Even better? Some of it is made right here in the Puget Sound.
