Puget Sound Energy representatives canvassed Bainbridge Island neighborhoods during the month of May to educate residents about our renewables programs – Green Power and Solar Choice. Homeowners or renters had the opportunity to meet face to face with knowledgeable staff to learn about program options, have their questions answered and begin participating in the program of their choice.
In 2013, the City partnered with PSE for a community Green Power challenge in an effort to educate residents and encourage its adoption. The program was well received and since then, the residents and businesses of Bainbridge have maintained approximately a 10 percent rate of participation.
In 2015, the City of Bainbridge Island increased their participation in the program to match 100 percent of the City’s electric use with renewable energy generated in the Pacific Northwest.
PSE committed to helping the island lower its carbon footprint – this is another example of how we are striving to do that.
