Our Energy Projects


Energy Northwest is a regional leader in power generation and energy services.

Energy Northwest is a joint action agency formed by the Washington state legislature in 1957, representing the convergence of small and big public power. Our consortium of 27 public utility districts and municipalities across Washington takes advantage of economies of scale and shared services to boost efficiency and effectiveness, all to the greater cost benefit of more than 1.5 million public power customers. 

The agency further improves quality of life throughout the Northwest through the generation of clean, reliable electricity from nuclear, wind, hydro and solar projects.
