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.

PSE hosts Boys Scouts for Merit Badge Day

BELLEVUE, Wash. (7/13/2018) It was a full house in the PSE Auditorium as 50 boys, from Chief Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts of America, worked on getting two of their merit badges on May 12.

The all-day event included hands on activities so Scout members could earn an Electricity badge, an Energy badge, or both.

“This is another way that PSE is committed to being a valued contributor in the community,” said Renee Zimmerman, Community Projects Manager at PSE and Leader of the Merit Badge Day. “Bringing together my passion for volunteering in Scouting and bridging this partnership allows PSE employees the opportunity to give back to our youth and get them excited about our industry.”

To earn their Energy Badge, the boys had to construct their own mini-turbine and learn about different energy forms, conversions, and efficiency.

The Scouts also worked with wires, batteries and paperclips to build their own circuit so they could earn their Electricity Badge.

More than a dozen PSE volunteers assisted with the event and spent countless hours making sure the event went smoothly
