Bellevue City Council Approves Energize Eastside Permit

The Bellevue City Council has unanimously agreed with the City of Bellevue Hearing Examiner’s decision to approve the Conditional Use Permit for the south Bellevue portion of the Energize Eastside project.

Energize Eastside is Puget Sound Energy’s project to build a new substation and upgrade approximately 16 miles of transmission lines within the existing corridor from Redmond to Renton. This important infrastructure upgrade is supported by MBAKS, who is a member of CURE (Communities United for Reliable Energy). The decision by the Hearing Examiner in June was appealed by an opposition group, setting the stage for the Bellevue City Council to act in a quasi-judicial role. 

Contact External Relations Manager Caia Caldwell, 425.460.8213, with any questions.
