Washington State Energy Office

People in our state spend over $20 billion per year on energy. Most of this money leaves the state to pay for oil and natural gas. Our state energy priorities get the most out of our state’s exceptional mix of innovation, free enterprise and green stewardship. This makes Washington State a leader in the clean energy economy. It also reduces our need to import energy. Developing renewable energy helps increase jobs and economic growth.

The Washington State Energy Office reviews energy issues, works on the benefits of energy and state energy goals. We provide energy policy support, analysis and information to the state and provide energy grants to Washington state entities. Read more about Washington State Energy Office.
