As of 3 p.m., Wednesday,
November 25

We anticipate most customers in Kitsap County will have their power restored tonight. Nearly all of Bainbridge Island should be restored by early this evening. Updated estimated restoration times are available on our online outage map at and the myPSE app.

All restoration times are estimates. Crews may encounter additional damage or repairs will take longer than anticipated. Customers needing certainty for their holiday plans may want to make alternate arrangements. Crews will continue working around the clock, including through Thanksgiving Day, to restore power to all customers.

We have brought in additional resources to support our efforts and have a total of 35 line crews plus servicemen, tree crews and damage assessment teams.

Kitsap County Plans to open warming shelters again tonight. Hours of operation are 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Guests are not able to check in the shelter after 9:00 p.m. The locations are listed below:

  • The Salvation Army (832 6th Street in Bremerton)
  • Kingston Community Center (1212 NE SR 104 in Kingston)

About our restoration process

Since 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, we have restored power to more than 95,000 customers throughout our service area.

We understand it can be frustrating for customers not to see crews working in their specific neighborhoods. In most cases, crews are working on equipment that needs to be repaired before power can be restored to homes and businesses. Once those repairs are made to transmission lines, circuits, substations, and other areas, crews can move into individual neighborhoods and communities. They might not see crew on their street, but a few might be nearby.

It’s possible that one part of a neighborhood will have power while other homes remain out. This happens because our system works in sections, or circuits. When we can, we’ll re-route power around damaged areas, and isolate the section that requires repairs.
