Sound Energy plans to build a new substation and upgrade approximately
18 miles of existing transmission lines from Redmond to Renton.
Over 6000 trees on the Eastside will be chopped down as a result
of this project. As
part of this effort, a new 3-mile-long, 115,000 volt transmission line
will be installed along 148th Avenue and NE 8th Street here in Bellevue.
In the process, about 300 trees would be removed.
Here are some of the ways in which PSE's "Energize
Eastside" could impact YOU, as a Bellevue resident:
1) Your electric bill. PSE plans to charge customers more to pay for the new transmission lines.
bottom line is going to go UP!
