PSE funding for COVID crisis-affected customers
Puget Sound Energy will make funds available to help customers who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes customers who recently becameunemployed, partially unemployed, or cannot work. The $11 million are carry-over funds under PSE’s Low Income Program. With approval from the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission, PSE made revisions to its program to make these funds available to a broader group of customers.
This program will be available to PSE’s residential customers in Island, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Lewis, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish, Thurston and Whatcom counties who meet the household size and income criteria.
Depending on average monthly usage, a qualified PSE customer:
- Must have a monthly household income limit at 250% of Federal Poverty Level
- Can receive up to $1,000 in PSE utility-bill credits per household
This table outlines the monthly household income limits at the Federal Poverty Level for households up to 10 people.
