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.

Hydroelectric power

Low-cost hydropower accounts for more than one-third of our current power portfolio. We own and operate two hydropower projects in western Washington: Baker River and Snoqualmie Falls. We also buy a substantial amount of hydroelectric power, much of it from central Washington public utility districts with large Columbia River dams.
