PSE power switching

PSE has issued the following notice to our community:

In an ongoing effort to deliver safe and reliable energy to you and your neighbors, Puget Sound Energy will install a new switch at the Clay Creek substation.

In order to do this work safely, it’s necessary to take the line out-of-service for approximately 36 hours. To avoid your power going out, we will transfer your electric service to the generator at Crystal Mountain so the work should be invisible to you. There may be a momentary outage as your power is switched from the line to the generator at around 7 a.m. Wednesday, October 19.

There is a remote chance your power could go out for a longer period due to the configuration of the generator. While we don’t anticipate this, we do want you to know of the possibility and be aware of the outage date and time.

Outage details (customer power will be provided by generator)

Outage area: Greenwater to Crystal Mountain
Date: Wednesday and Thursday, October 19 and 20
Estimated outage duration: Approx. 36 hours
To occur between: 7 a.m. October 19 and 7 p.m. on October 20

We are proud to serve in your community and aim to complete the work with no disruption of service to you. If you have any concerns or questions, please call 1-888-404-8773 or email

Thank you for your understanding as we work to complete this project.
