- PSE submits permit application for Energize Eastside through south Bellevue

Progress on Energize Eastside continues with PSE submitting its first permit application to the City of Bellevue. PSE plans to build and energize the new Richards Creek substation in Bellevue and upgrade the existing transmission lines in south Bellevue, Newcastle and Renton by the summer of 2018.   

Permit applications for the rest of the southern portion of the project in Newcastle and Renton will be submitted this fall. After that, PSE anticipates submitting permit applications for the northern portion in Bellevue and Redmond in late 2017 – early 2018.

For more information about PSE’s final route, referred to as Willow 1, review our announcement and video.
