PUGET POWER WINS REGIONAL ENERGY CONSERVATION AWARD

 BELLEVUE, Wash., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Puget Sound Power & Light Co. (NYSE: PSD) announced today it was awarded the Northwest Conservation Act Coalition's annual Eagle Award in recognition of the utility's innovative energy conservation programs.
 "Awarding this (the Eagle Award) to Puget Power's conservation department was a slam dunk," Coalition Executive Director K.C. Golden said in presenting the award the Jerry Lehenbauer, director of Conservation Services for Puget Power. "Puget Power has forged its way into the lead among Northwest businesses and is way ahead of the pack when it comes to conservation in the region," Golden said.
 Last year, commercial, industrial and residential customers participating in Puget Power's conservation programs saved nearly 28 average megawatts of electricity -- enough to serve about 20,400 residential homes, said Lehenbauer. "This achievement tells us that customers are understanding more and more about the importance of conservation," he said.
 According to Golden, the company's programs have resulted in a mutual sense of trust and accomplishment between the Northwest Conservation Act Coalition and Puget Power. "We need more action like Puget Power's to achieve the Northwest's ambitious targets for energy conservation, the most environmentally responsible way of meeting the region's electrical energy needs," Golden said.
 The coalition, a regional public interest organization advocating energy conservation, presents the Eagle Award to utilities and others that take strong action to meet the Northwest's energy conservation goals.
