Snoqualmie enters final stretch in Green Power Challenge | Help the city take first place

The city of Snoqualmie is in the final weeks of Puget Sound Energy’s Green Power Challenge. The challenge kicked off in the spring with Snoqualmie contending with Kirkland, Tumwater, Anacortes, and Bainbridge Island for $40,000 toward a community solar power project. Snoqualmie already secured $20,000, but another $20,000 is on the line.

The win is based on the greatest percentage of customer growth in the program for each city in 2013. Currently, Snoqualmie’s Green Power customer growth is 3.36 percent since the beginning of the challenge. The city has been battling Tumwater for several months, but Anacortes has pulled ahead to second position behind Snoqualmie.

December 31 is the deadline for Snoqualmie PSE customers to be counted. Inserted in this month’s water utility bills from the City of Snoqualmie is a postcard to sign up for the Green Power program. Learn more at pse.com/GPChallenge.
