Tired of your hard-earned dollars propping up the fossil fuel industry and lining the pockets of PSE’s foreign owners at rate payers’ expense? JOIN US ON FEB 21 TO DEMAND 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY AND A 21ST CENTURY GRID! 

PSE’s 20-year plan is a blueprint for locking WA into decades of fossil fuels and an outdated energy grid.

1. Puget Sound Energy is sacrificing Puyallup Tribal land, community safety, and customer money for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Tacoma that we do not need.

2. PSE plans to operate its Colstrip coal plant—the largest source of carbon pollution in the NW—until at least 2035.

3. PSE intends to build over 700 MW of new fracked gas plants over the next 10 years and has already secured the permits to begin construction.

4. Instead of investing in renewable resources, energy storage, and other modern solutions, PSE is wasting $1 billion of ratepayer dollars in coming decades on “Energize Eastside” - an obsolete and unsafe transmission line through Eastside neighborhoods that only benefits the company’s bottom line. 

State regulators want your feedback on PSE's long-term plan and are hosting a public hearing on Wednesday, February 21. Rally at noon (Stay tuned for speakers!). Testimony kicks off at 1:30 pm. Please arrive by 1 pm to sign in before public comment begins.
