Cable remediation projects


PSE works year-round to replace aging underground electric cables across our 6,000 square mile service area. We initiated the Cable Remediation Program (CRP) to address the increasing number of underground cable failures occurring in residential areas and causing outages for our customers. Our program proactively monitors the performance of our underground cables approaching the end of their useful life (typically 20 years) and replaces them. This results in fewer power outages for the customers these cables serve.

We select CRP projects each year based on cable failure history data and current cable conditions. PSE’s electric service partner, Potelco, Inc., is responsible for the project management, engineering, construction and quality control of each cable project installation.
