Energy emergencies in Washington state are supported by staff in the Energy Division. We work hard to make sure energy shortages are controlled, reducing impacts on citizens, businesses, and the economy. Working with others, we identify and protect critical state energy infrastructure. We offer a mapping tool for utilities and state emergency management to track power outages and restoration.
The state specific plan for critical energy infrastructure was produced by the Washington State Energy Coordinating Council. The council includes representatives from electricity, natural gas, petroleum products suppliers and state agency representatives with energy responsibilities.
