- Permitting process moves ahead for Energize Eastside

PSE has submitted permit applications for south Bellevue and Newcastle. Permits are needed so PSE can build and energize the new Richards Creek substation in Bellevue and upgrade the transmission lines in south Bellevue, Newcastle, and Renton by summer 2018.

Permit applications for the rest of the southern portion of the project in Renton will be submitted later this fall. Each city has their own unique permitting process that includes opportunities for public involvement.

PSE anticipates submitting permit applications for the northern portion in Bellevue and Redmond in late 2017-early 2018.
