Crews Restore Power to Customers in West Seattle

SEATTLE Seattle City Light crews restored power at approximately 8:15 p.m. to 3,100 West Seattle customers affected by an outage earlier in the evening. A downed tree branch on a power line along Ferry Avenue SW. was the source of the outage which started at 6:20 p.m.

Customers can get outage information online at www.seattle.gov/light/sysstat.

Seattle City Light is the tenth largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
