Puget Sound Energy has partnered with BEF to meet the diverse needs of our customers for more than a decade, including supplying RECs for our Green Power program from a locally owned small wind project—Lime Wind.

In 2011, Puget Sound Energy launched the Carbon Balance program as a means for customers to offset the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with their natural gas usage. After a competitive solicitation process, PSE selected BEF as our GHG offset provider. We were particularly excited by the source of the offsets—a Washington state dairy biodigester project.

Setting up a new program is not easy, but BEF partnered with us every step of the way. The BEF team helped us to create customer outreach materials, organize a tour of the dairy facility that the offsets were sourced from, create a customer-facing marketing video and directly promote the program to our commercial customers.

BEF is a trusted source for Carbon Offsets and RECs and that means a lot to our organization and our customers.
