As a provider of an essential service, we are working to ensure we are here for our customers, our community and our employees as coronavirus impacts the region.

With Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington county-by-county phased re-opening approach, PSE is gradually returning maintenance and construction crews back into the field and offices. PSE’s highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and communities. As such, we continue to adhere to current CDC guidance regarding COVID-19 while working in our community.

We are requiring our employees to maintain physical distancing while working in the field and offices. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

Project overview

The last major upgrade to the backbone of the Eastside’s electric grid was in the 1960s. Since then, our population has grown eight-fold and our economy depends on reliable power in ways that it did not 50 years ago.

The Energize Eastside project will build a new substation and upgrade approximately 16 miles of existing transmission lines from Redmond to Renton. Combined with continued aggressive electric conservation efforts, Energize Eastside will keep the lights on in our Eastside communities for years to come.
