Celebrate Energy Awareness Month:
PSE’s “Take Charge” Green Power Challenge

As summer heat slowly transitions into cooler weather, fall is the perfect time to “think green” and consider how to be more energy efficient. This October, as the country celebrates National Energy Awareness Month, community members have the opportunity to help Puyallup win the title of ‘Greenest Town in Puget Sound!’

The City of Puyallup is competing against the City of Issaquah and the City of Redmond in Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) Take Charge Green Power Challenge. Each city that meets its challenge goal of new enrollments into PSE’s Green Power program will be awarded a $20,000 grant to go towards a community solar project. The city with the highest percentage of enrollments will be dubbed the Greenest Town in the Puget Sound and win an additional $20,000 to go toward their solar project. Visit our Green Power Challenge page to learn more about Puyallup’s progress in meeting its challenge goals. You can also read more about green energy and sign up for PSE’s Green Power Program online.
