What is Green Power?

For as little as $4 per month, you can get your electricity sourced from renewable energy sources like wind, biogas, and sun—including some right here in Skagit County. Learn more and sign up online at PSE’s Green Power website.

The Challenge

Puget Sound Energy is challenging five Western Washington cities to get 15% more of their citizens signed up for Green Power. So far, Anacortes is lagging behind!

The Reward

If we get 15% more electricity users signed up for Green Power—just 85 residents—we’ll win a $20,000 solar array for the city. If we get the highest percentage of all five cities, we’ll get a bonus $20,000. Help us out! If you already are a Green Power customer, boost your participation level to add to our recruitment total. You’ll also be entered to win a $10,000 solar system for yourself.

Isn’t the Northwest already powered by renewables?

Not exactly. Although much of Washington’s power is generated by hydroelectric facilities, we’re part of a multistate grid that includes many other states with much less cleaner energy sources. Since electricity is sold to wherever there’s demand, decreasing our overall demand and increasing our renewables mix here in Washington can help offset the demand for dirtier energy elsewhere.
