Here in Wilderness Rim, the power is serviced by Puget Sound Energy.  PSE customers can now get a mobile reporting app to keep tabs on power outages.  According to a PSE media release, the app is available for most web-enabled smartphones and tablets. It can be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Even if the electricity is out at a customer’s home or business, they can still access the app to get the information they need.PowerLines
Key features of the app include:
