PSE COVID-19 Response

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.

We know some of our business and residential customers might be worried about paying their bills. Here are measurable actions we’ve taken on behalf of our customers:

  • PSE will not be disconnecting customers for non-payment during this time.
  • During Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” order, PSE will only respond to emergency and make-safe situations which require restoration of power or natural gas such as: outages, natural gas leaks/odors, and low-hanging wire. We will also be working to support the essential facilities and services as listed in Governor Inslee’s critical infrastructure throughout our community.
  • PSE will work with our customers on options such as payment plans and choosing a new bill due date.
  • PSE has an energy assistance portal to facilitate access to funds available to income qualified customers.
  • PSE is requiring our employees to maintain social distancing while working in the field. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

Bike to Work Day was a great success

BELLEVUE, Wash. (5/23/2018) It was a great turn out for Bike to Work Day, May 18. Several riders came through our celebration stations in Bellevue, Bellingham, and Seattle.

Several employees ditched their cars and made the trek to work on their bikes, including Vice President of Regulatory and Government Affairs Ken Johnson.
The event was hosted by Cascade Bicycle Club as part of Bike Everywhere Month. As one of our Powerful Partners, Cascade Bicycle Club is the nation’s largest statewide bicycle nonprofit whose mission is to improve lives through bicycling.

Dozens of employees teamed to ride in to work together from Bellingham, Bothell, Bellevue, Redmond, Ellensburg, and other areas.

Dozens of bicyclists stopped at our stations to grab snacks, giveaways and information about the types of programs we have to offer. In Bellingham, more than 70 people visited our station.

An estimated 30 Bellevue bike commuters stopped at our celebration station to refuel during the two hours we were set up outside our Bellevue Campus. Several people on foot also stopped by to chat and were interested in our Energy Efficiency and Renewables programs. We even had one customer sign-up for a free Home Energy Assessment.

Bike to Work Day is a day to celebrate using an alternative form of transportation. And, it’s a green form of transportation—it can help us reach our goal to reduce our carbon footprint by 50 percent in 2040.

Check out a time lapse video of one of our riders biking in from Seattle across the 520 bridge.
