PSE News Update
A pipeline rupture near Prince George, British Columbia has disrupted natural gas flow from Canada, creating a major disruption of gas supply to the Pacific Northwest, including Puget Sound Energy. At present, there is no estimated time for return to service. This incident could affect PSE’s ability to supply natural gas to customers’ homes and businesses. Although PSE’s supply of gas has been impacted, there is no damage to the PSE gas system or safety hazard to our customers from the pipeline failure in Canada.
PSE is asking customers to help conserve natural gas and electricity. Customers can set their thermostats at a lower setting and limit the use of hot water, such as dishwashing or clothes washing, and other natural gas and electric appliances through Wednesday.
PSE is doing all we can to maintain our natural gas system operations, and we’ll provide updates as we learn more from our supplier. For electric generation, PSE is switching natural gas generators to alternative fuels.
