To inform the routing process for the “missing link” transmission line project, we’re seeking your feedback on several potential route options connecting Murden Cove and Winslow substations within the project study area.

Use the Route Explorer – an interactive online tool – to review route options under consideration for the new transmission line, explore the evaluation criteria and segment data, and submit your feedback on the route options.

Welcome

Overview

As part of our 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 our 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 options under consideration.

We want to hear from you!

Thank you for sharing your feedback! If sharing comments on the route options PSE is considering, please read the following questions before submitting. Feedback that responds to these questions will most help PSE identify a preferred route to permit.

  • Is there anything PSE is missing and/or should know about these routes?
  • What features of these route options are priorities for you?
  • Which route option or options are consistent with your priorities? Why?
  • Are there any opportunities you see with specific route options? If so, what opportunities along which routes?
