To improve safety and electric reliability, PSE plans to upgrade the electric system along Northeast Hidden Cove Road (see project map above) beginning in late May. These upgrades will include installing a new section of underground cable, replacing aging utility poles, and replacing existing electric wire with tree wire. By installing tree wire in other locations, PSE has reduced power outages related to falling tree branches by up to 95 percent.
Crews typically work Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and plan to complete the work in early November 2023. We’re proud to serve in your community and aim to complete these upgrades with as little disruption as possible. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact Artemia Settle, the project manager, at Artemia.Settle@pse.com or 360-630-8829 and reference project # 101117741. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to improve your electric reliability.
