At Thurston Energy, we help Thurston County save money, save energy and live more comfortable, healthy lives. We evaluate energy use and recommend energy-saving measures in both homes and businesses throughout the county. We work with local contractors and homeowners to drive investments in energy efficiency through rebates and incentives provided by the State of Washington and Washington State University Energy program.
