UPDATE 12/22 Power Outage

We expect all 2765 customers in the Sudden Valley neighborhood to be restored by 3pm this afternoon.

Crews are currently on site to cut or clear two large trees leaning against the line before reenergizing the system.

We understand how difficult it is to be without power, especially with so many of our customers working from home. Our crews are working as quickly as they can to safely assess damage and make repairs to equipment. Estimated restoration times will be updated on our outage map at pse.com/outagemap

Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Scheduled Puget Sound Energy Power Outage 11/27/18 & 11/29/18: Gate 2 Residences

PSE’s customers in Gate 2 have experienced frequent outages and unreliable service due to their outdated and deteriorating electric distribution infrastructure.  In response PSE has been upgrading their infrastructure to address and resolve the problem.  The outdated components have been replaced but require electrical outages to transfer power from the older components to the new system.  PSE has planned three electrical outages that will enable them to complete this upgrade. 

The outages are scheduled on Tuesday, November 27th and Thursday, November 29th which will disrupt power from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.   The third outage will only impact the Water District and the Clubhouse.

Questions on the outage should be directed to PSE at 425-516-3033.
