The Eastside’s electric grid must have more transmission capacity or residents and businesses from Bothell to Renton could face a scenario of rolling blackouts or full-scale power outages. This is unacceptable – residents, schools, businesses, social service agencies, and hospitals all rely on dependable power. To do nothing or to delay

As concerned community members:

We are concerned about the economic, social and public safety

We believe that for our region to continue to prosper, we must have electrical infrastructure that is built on time using proven technologies to deliver dependable power.

We support Puget Sound Energy’s Energize Eastside project.
We need Energize Eastside to keep the lights on - at home, at play,
and on the job - as we grow into the future.
We must have power available to
