Puget Sound Energy (PSE) Info and Updates
- The storm produced extensive damage to the electric system.
- PSE is working to bring in out-of-area crews.
- Helicopters for damage assessment are going to fly when it’s daylight.
- There is no estimated time for power restoration at this time.
Our first step in restoring power is damage assessment: getting a look at what’s been done to the system and determining the extent of repairs that are needed. The process takes time and crews may be delayed, as unsafe weather remains an issue. Unsafe weather and road conditions can slow these efforts.
We (PSE) understand how difficult it is to be without power - especially with so many of our customers working from home and/or navigating remote learning. Our crews will work as quickly as they can to safely assess damage and make repairs to equipment.
