Energize Eastside Updates
Posted on 12/07/2017

The City of Newcastle has created a dedicated webpage for Energize Eastside permit application updates. Citizens can get the latest updates, view permit documents and learn how to get involved at www.newcastlewa.gov/energizeeastside.

Puget Sound Energy has submitted materials for a Conditional Use Permit (#17-002), a Critical Areas Review (#17-013) and a Variance application (#17-004) related to the Energize Eastside project.

PSE proposes to construct a new Richards Creek Substation in Bellevue and upgrade 18 miles of two existing 115-kilovolt transmission lines with 230-kilovolt lines. Collectively, this proposal, which spans from Renton to Redmond, is referred to as Energize Eastside. The Newcastle segment is approximately 1.5 miles located within an existing utility corridor and PSE proposes to replace 52 wooden poles with 24 steel poles.
