Puget Sound Energy invites the community to the first in a series of workshops, as part of the company’s Energize Eastside project.

The project, in response to the region’s growing power needs, will bring new higher capacity electric transmission lines to the Eastside.

The new lines will extend from a substation in Redmond to Renton, but the exact route the lines will take is currently unknown. One of the proposed routes directly affects the Olympus neighborhood.

At the workshop, these committees will work side-by-side with community members to learn more about the project, understand local area issues and assess potential route segments against community values.
