Current Happenings

Come to the WUTC Meeting this Wednesday and voice your disapproval of PSE’s plans! The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) will solicit public comment on PSE’s plans at a public meeting on Wednesday, February 21st. This is a rare opportunity to provide feedback to state regulators who help determine how PSE invests for our energy future. Location: Renton Community Center,  1715 SE Maple Valley Highway. Comment period is from 1:30 to 7 PM. You can also submit written comments to the WUTC. Click here to learn more.

Energize Eastside is NOT a Done Deal! PSE has submitted applications for permits to build Energize Eastside, but none have yet been approved. By meeting with homeowners, PSE is trying to give the appearance that the project is underway, but that is far from the truth. There is still a legal hearing and appeals to get through, so it’s not too late to stop Energize Eastside and push for better solutions. For details about PSE’s permit application, the review process, and how you can get involved, click here.
