Neutral expert needed


At Energize Eastside meetings, Bellevue residents have repeatedly requested that PSE submit one-line diagrams, various load flows and at least some results from their analysis of the system's need for upgrading. Otherwise we cannot verify how much this encroaching and expensive project is truly needed.

PSE has told us no, that because of homeland security issues, they cannot disclose this information. It seems ironic that PSE, now owned by an international foreign-owned company (the Macquarie Group), is telling us, citizens of the USA, that we cannot see our own electrical diagrams because of homeland security. And since PSE is investor-owned, how are we to know they are not taking advantage of us, their customers, to make their investors happy?

We need the city to hire an independent, neutral expert (not paid for by PSE) to verify PSE's data and the costs of the solutions they are proposing.
