As an owner of more than 350,000 utility poles in the Puget Sound area, PSE has extensive infrastructure capable of meeting a wide variety of needs for the communities we serve. In order to avoid duplication of effort and cost, Joint Use of utility poles for wireline attachments has been a common practice for the past few decades allowing for multiple companies to provide service off shared poles.
Throughout the PSE service territory we are experiencing dramatic increases in Joint Use applications. The push to enable next generation technologies will continue to necessitate an efficient, customer focused, and precise method of processing applications and supporting our partner’s network goals.
For joint use attachments to PSE owned facilities, all application submittals and project communication are conducted through the National Joint Utilities Notification System (NJUNS). Here's what you'll need to apply for joint use with PSE.
