As a provider of an essential service, we are working to ensure we are here for our customers, our community and our employees as coronavirus impacts the region.

With Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington county-by-county phased re-opening approach, PSE is gradually returning maintenance and construction crews back into the field and offices. PSE’s highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and communities. As such, we continue to adhere to current CDC guidance regarding COVID-19 while working in our community.

We are requiring our employees to maintain physical distancing while working in the field and offices. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

Storing Your Own Power

Batteries can provide temporary back-up power during an outage and store excess electricity from rooftop solar. If you’re purchasing your own battery, PSE offers installation guidelines.

Per PSE's Electric Tariff G, Schedule 80, we also strongly encourage installers and our customers to report their battery installations throughout our service area by filling out and submitting this online notification form. By sharing your information, you’ll help PSE properly manage the services that we provide to all customers on our grid, and also help us evaluate further opportunities to support customers’ battery storage installations.

PSE is also testing battery storage in a variety of local scenarios to determine the best ways they can potentially enhance the grid and meet our customers’ unique energy needs.
