Where are We in the Process?
We are preparing the Final EIS, including reviewing and responding to comments from Phase 1 and Phase 2. The Final EIS is anticipated for publication in early 2018.
*NEW* PSE Permit Applications
PSE has begun submitting permit applications for portions of the Energize Eastside project. Applications must be filed separately for each jurisdiction because each must issue separate permits.

For information about the permit application for Newcastle, visit the City's webpage or contact Thara Johnson (425-649-4444, info@EnergizeEastsideEIS.org).
