ONLINE OPEN HOUSE: Jan. 22 – Feb. 12, 2021
As part of the solution to improve electric reliability on the island, we’re planning to build the new “missing link” transmission line between the Murden Cove and Winslow substations. This new transmission line is a critical component of PSE’s plan to improve electric service reliability, reducing the frequency and duration of power outages for customers on Bainbridge Island.
It’s PSE's goal to understand community values and interests around the new transmission line, so we launched a community engagement process to gather input. To help reach that goal we’re asking for the community’s feedback on the route segments under consideration.
