January 2002 - Puget Sound Energy (PSE), an investor-owned utility serving more than 900,000 customers in western Washington State, is offering a green pricing option to its residential and business customers. Participating customers must purchase at least 200 kWh of green power for an extra $4 per month, or a 2.0¢/kWh premium on the regular rate. Additional 100-kWh blocks can be purchased for $2 each. PSE is teaming with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to supply the program with power from new wind projects and other renewable resources in the Pacific Northwest.
Under a law enacted in 2001, all Washington-based utilities are required to offer a green power option to their customers beginning in 2002.
