PSE COVID-19 Response

As a provider of an essential service, we are working to ensure we are here for our customers, our community and our employees as coronavirus impacts the region.

We know some of our business and residential customers might be worried about paying their bills. Here are measurable actions we’ve taken on behalf of our customers:

  • PSE will not be disconnecting customers for non-payment during this time.
  • During Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” order, PSE will only respond to emergency and make-safe situations which require restoration of power or natural gas such as: outages, natural gas leaks/odors, and low-hanging wire. We will also be working to support the essential facilities and services as listed in Governor Inslee’s critical infrastructure throughout our community.
  • PSE will work with our customers on options such as payment plans and choosing a new bill due date.
  • PSE has an energy assistance portal to facilitate access to funds available to income qualified customers.
  • PSE is requiring our employees to maintain social distancing while working in the field. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

PSE’s Bremerton Substation to unveil new artwork
The artwork is part of PSE’s ARTility project, which is aimed at reducing maintenance on PSE assets by covering them with art

BELLEVUE, Wash. (10/30/2018) PSE’s Bremerton Substation to unveil new artwork

Puget Sound Energy’s Bremerton substation located in  Bremerton near Park Ave. and 10th St. will soon have new art showcased from four local artists. The artwork is part of PSE’s ‘ARTility’ project, which is a beautification project aimed at saving customers money by reducing or eliminating graffiti clean-up costs.

 

“Our research shows that the art has the potential to reduce maintenance costs by deterring graffiti or illegal dumping,” said Nick Hartrich, PSE outreach manager. “We are already seeing the impact this kind of artwork is having in our communities by creating attractive public spaces.”

 

PSE worked with the City of Bremerton and the Bremerton Arts Commission to select four artists for the Bremerton project.

 

“We have been working on a number of beautification efforts around the city, and we were pleased to be able to help PSE on their efforts to beautify one of their local substations by connecting them with some of our wonderful local talent,” said Bremerton Mayor Greg Wheeler.

 

The artwork, which will be displayed on twelve 4x8 panels on two sides of the substation, will represent PSE’s commitment to renewable energy and reducing its carbon footprint 50 percent by 2040.

 

The Bremerton Substation is one of nine projects that will be completed by the end of the year. A 21,600 sq. ft. mural at PSE’s Encogen facility in Whatcom County was completed earlier this month.

 

These are some of the renderings of the artwork:
