What is PSE doing to reduce carbon emissions?

PSE is committed to reducing carbon emissions. Working together with our customers, we’ve already taken steps in that direction, including a commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, retiring coal-fired power plants and investing in wind and solar projects right here in Washington. As a result of our work with the Washington State Legislature, we’re able to accelerate the transition to a clean energy future, allowing us to move further faster.

  • We worked alongside the Washington State Legislature to develop historic legislation in 2019 to accelerate the transition to a clean energy future. This means moving up the coal transition date to 2025, advancing cleaner transportation, and providing a carbon-neutral electric supply by 2030 and carbon-free electricity by 2045.
  • Colstrip Units 1 and 2 are scheduled to close by the end of this year, meaning PSE is well on the way to transitioning away from coal generation by 2025.

Together with our Bainbridge Island customers, we’ll improve reliability, ensure we can continue to meet your energy needs and create a better energy future.
