Save 300 trees in East Bellevue

Dear City Manager Brad Miyake,

We the undersigned oppose Puget Sound Energy’s proposal to cut down 300 trees and install a new 115,000-volt transmission line on two of East Bellevue’s beautiful urban boulevards, 148th Ave. and NE 8th St.  According to PSE reliability reports, this line would have prevented only one 15-minute outage during the last ten years.

There is a different solution that would provide better reliability for less cost and less environmental damage.  Bellevue’s independent consultant recommended automatic switches and remote monitoring equipment.  PSE recently installed this kind of solution in downtown Bellevue.  In its latest report to the city, PSE said, “Installation of SCADA switches in the Bellevue Downtown … is a major distribution automation improvement.”  A similar solution is feasible for Lake Hills according to two former PSE engineers who worked for the company for over 20 years. 

We ask you to convene a meeting of members of the Bellevue City Council, the East Bellevue City Council, PSE representatives, and CENSE experts to discuss a solution that delivers improved electrical reliability to Bellevue’s neighborhoods while preserving the beauty of the “City in a Park” for future generations.
