PSE asks customers to conserve natural gas and electricity following pipeline rupture
BELLEVUE, Wash. (10/10/2018) PSE asks customers to conserve natural gas and electricity following pipeline rupture
A pipeline rupture Tuesday evening in British Columbia, Canada could affect PSE’s ability to supply natural gas to our customers’ homes and businesses.
Although our gas supply has been impacted, there is no damage to the PSE gas system or safety hazard to our customers from the pipeline failure in Canada.
We are asking customers to help conserve natural gas and electricity. Customers can set their thermostats at a lower setting and limit the use of hot water, such as dishwashing or clothes washing, and other natural gas and electric appliances tonight and through Thursday.
We are doing all we can to maintain our natural gas system operations, and we’ll provide updates as we learn more from our supplier. For electric generation, PSE is switching natural gas generators to alternative fuels.
