October Windstorm

Damage assessment and restoration efforts begin

Windy, rainy weather is causing power outages around Western Washington. A high wind warning remains in effect for locations in our Northern service area until 5 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26. Additionally, a wind advisory remains in effect in the East Puget Sound Lowlands until 6 p.m. this evening.

We’re currently experiencing power outages across our service area, with many outages concentrated in King County. Power outages are the result of the wind coupled with stressed trees that still have their leaves. In stiff and gusty winds, that means trees can topple more easily and damage power equipment, and branches can take flight and hit power lines.

Our Emergency Coordination Center and local storm bases are opening to coordinate restoration efforts, and our crews are ready to assess damage and make repairs as conditions are safe.


Safety first. Never touch or go within 35 feet of downed power lines because they might be energized. Call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 or 911 to report problems.

Budget payment plan

Want more predictable energy bills? Our Budget Payment Plan evens out energy costs throughout the year.*

  • Monthly payment based on average annual energy usage.
  • Less fluctuation in your monthly bill.
  • Avoids unplanned high bills during winter heating months.
  • Regular account reviews to reduce chances of a large amount due at the end of the Budget Payment Plan year in June.

To see if you are eligible, please sign in to your account.

If you have a current bill, it will still be due on the regular due date. Bi-monthly customers will still be billed every other month. Payments must be received by 5 p.m. PST on the date due. If you wish to be removed from the Budget Payment Plan, click the "Remove from Plan" button above. If you un-enroll from the budget payment plan, that change will not be reflected until the next invoice is generated.

Customers who enroll in the Budget Payment Plan are not eligible to receive Bill Notifications. If you are enrolled in Bill Notifications, you will be un-enrolled when you set up your Budget Payment Plan.
