New tool simplifies utility set-up

July 6, 2020


Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has simplified the process for setting up electric and natural gas service for homebuyers in their 6,000 square mile service territory, which covers much of Western Washington. The online tool may be used for setting up, stopping, or moving service.

"It's hard enough going through the process of buying a house. Setting up service can be confusing and time consuming," stated Brandon Leyritz, a community engagement staff member at PSE. Same-day service can be arranged, or it can be scheduled up to 60 days in advance, he added.

PSE serves 1.1 million electric and 840,000 natural gas customers
