Skookumchuck Wind Energy PSE Project

The City Council recently approved an initiative to power our municipal buildings with wind. The Public Works Department continually investi-gates alternative power solutions in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and this approval is a milestone in our carbon-neutral journey. 

“The City has always been interested in the evolution and progress of green energy.” 
– Fred Buckenmeyer, Director of Public Works 


The City will devote all of the dollars spent on electricity to fund this wind project, which is slated to start producing power in 2019. Currently, the City subscribes to PSE’s entire portfolio of power sources, which include wind, coal, hydro and natural gas. When this project is complete, the City’s Municipal Buildings will be powered 100% by wind, making our electrical carbon footprint zero!
