Is the Energize Eastside debate finished?

Not even close!

Is Energize Eastside a done deal? NO

Is PSE following the lead of other utilities who use reliable 21st century technologies to provide electricity? NO

Is there time for PSE to implement a better plan for our communities, our environment and our economy? YES


  1. Energize Eastside cannot be constructed until the cities of Bellevue, Redmond, Renton and Newcastle approve PSE’s applications for building permits. Permits can’t be issued until the Final Environmental Impact Statement is released in January 2018.
  2. CENSE is preparing its case to appeal any building permits issued for Energize Eastside.
  3. CENSE is submitting documents to the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission which critique the outdated key assumptions and technologies PSE used to justify the need for Energize Eastside. There are now safer, less expensive, and less destructive solutions to provide reliable electricity for the Eastside (Energize Eastside) and East Bellevue (Lake Hills transmission line).
  4. CENSE welcomed partnerships with the Sierra Club, 350 Eastside, and Protectors of the Salish Sea to protect the environment from unnecessary transmission lines, dirty energy from coal plants and fracked gas. Modern batteries and demand-response programs can provide reliable electricity and save money for customers.
