Puget Sound Energy, (PSE) recently announced a plan to purchase wind power from Montana as part of it’s effort to replace its coal generated electricity by 2025 – as mandated by Washington law.

These wind turbines will be located in the same region as the Colstrip coal plants, creating 350 construction jobs and 20 full time operations positions.

PSE is purchasing 350 megawatts of power, enough to power ~140,000 homes with clean, renewable energy.

In 2019, PSE produced ~66% of it’s electricity from fossil fuels including 9% from wind power and they have a goal of becoming net-zero by 2045. This is a great step in that direction!
