Puget Sound Energy (PSE), a Bellevue, Wash.-based electric utility, has received Green-e certification from the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) for PSE's Green Power program.

The renewable resources offered to PSE's customers as part of its Green Power program are sourced from local generators in Oregon and Washington, the company says. Customers will receive energy sourced predominantly from wind generated in-state, as well as smaller amounts of wind from Oregon and biomass and solar energy.

"Green-e is very pleased to have PSE in the program and to have so many electricity users, from individual residential customers to the many large commercial customers in PSE's service territory, able to sign up for local, certified renewable energy," says Alex Pennock, CRS' associate. "This is a huge opportunity for ratepayers, renewables and for state of Washington."
