PSE awarded more than $780,000 in solar installation grants to local organizations and tribes

For the seventh consecutive year, PSE awarded Green Power Solar Grants (GPSG) to local organizations and tribes across our service area. This month, we awarded $782,599 to nine local organizations and tribes, including recipients in Kitsap County. This funding supports new solar installations, which saves grant recipients money on their utilities and helps advance access to clean energy in the region. The projects from this year’s GPSG recipients will generate about 335,000 kWh of electricity annually, equivalent to powering nearly 32 average-sized homes.

All of this year’s recipients are local non-profits and tribal entities serving low-income and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community members. In Kitsap County, grant recipients include the following:

This is the third year the Suquamish Tribe has received a Green Power Solar Grant. This year’s funds will support the Tribe with two solar projects – one on its Administration Building and another on its Marion Forsman Boushie Early Learning Center.

PSE has provided a total of $4.8 million in GPSG funding over the last seven years, resulting in more than 2.2 million kWh of estimated annual solar generation. The GPSG program will release another competitive funding cycle this summer.
