NE Day Road electric system upgrade

Completed in 2016

In an ongoing effort to deliver safe, dependable and efficient energy, Puget Sound Energy worked in the Northeast Day Road area to upgrade the existing overhead electric distribution system.

Through August and September, we reconfigured overhead electric lines to reduce exposure to falling tree branches, installed tree wire and replaced 19 utility poles. Tree wire is a specially coated overhead wire, which is strong enough to withstand a tree limb falling into the line, and can significantly reduce the frequency of tree-related power outages.
