Cable remediation projects

PSE works year-round replacing aging underground electric cables across our 6,000 square mile service area. The Cable Remediation Program (CRP), was initiated in response to increasing numbers of underground cable failures in residential areas, 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, resulting in fewer power outages for the customers these cables serve.

CRP projects are determined 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.
