Transmission line community engagement process

As part of our solution to improve reliability on the island, we’re planning to build the new “missing link” transmission line between the Murden Cove and Winslow substations. It’s PSE’s goal to understand community values and interests around the new transmission line, so we’re launching a community engagement process to gather input and feedback.

There are many ways you can be involved, including a Community Sounding Board (CSB), community workshops, a comment form where you can provide input and feedback 24/7, as well as by email and phone.

Community Sounding Board

PSE convened the CSB to help inform the routing process for the new “missing link” transmission line between the Winslow and Murden Cove substations.

The 20-member CSB will individually and collectively provide input and feedback on criteria, route segments and other project related topics identified by PSE during the transmission line routing process. Members were selected from a pool of applicants, and represent a variety of geographic, organizational and individual interests from inside and outside the project study area.

Next meeting: Virtual community workshop

All CSB meetings are open to the public to observe, and there will be a brief opportunity for public comment at each meeting. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adjusted our approach to hold the CSB meetings virtually while social distancing recommendations are still in place.
