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. 

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.
