Following Hanna Newton’s blog post to Seattle Utilities Discount Program, I felt posting some thing regarding programs and options available for the rest of King County not on Seattle Utilities was necessary.
Starting with options for low-income households Puget Sound Energy (PSE) offers two types of programs. Both of which are all administered by different program organizations in each county. All following the Life Line a Federal government funding standards calculations.
The other option which personally am a participant of is Residential Exchange Program. Which income isnt the bases for this program. The federal government BPA and providing credit for energy is. Thus removing all the technical terms; the federal government provides companies like (PSE, SPU) so much credit to be used for providing reusable energy. Thus costing them less money. By applying and meeting the requirements you than are entitled to using that credit the federal government gives to the company directly on your own bill. Which means your bill is less than what others not enrolled would pay.
