Through our Green Power and Solar Choice programs, we’ve awarded more than $1 million in grant funding to 15 organizations in our service area to install new solar projects. Recipients range from local nonprofits, housing authorities and tribal entities serving low-income and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community members and projects that further clean energy in the region. View the list of recipients here.

"These grants are possible because of our customers who have chosen to support clean, renewable power by participating in the PSE Green Power and Solar Choice Programs,” said Director of Product Development Will Einstein. “Their participation in PSE’s voluntary renewables programs allows us to help these agencies fund new solar projects that create energy cost savings that they can use to support their core mission.”

The annual generation of the projects will total nearly 560,000 kWh, equivalent to powering nearly 50 average homes each year with newly installed solar from the Puget Sound region. The goal is to help local organizations reduce operating costs while also reducing their carbon footprint by using renewable energy they’ve generated.

Our Green Power program will offer another competitive funding cycle later in 2021. Read the press release here.
