Rates effective January 1, 2010 form the basis for the cost information in the appliance chart. City Light rates are structured to provide an initial block of inexpensive electricity to cover basic life needs such as cooking, hot water and refrigeration and a second block to cover additional needs of most users. The two blocks are priced as follows:
    City of Seattle Rates:
  • First block rate: For the first 10 kWh per day on average in summer or 16 kWh per day on average in winter, you pay the first block rate of $0.0439 per kWh.
  • Second block rate: For additional use of 11 or more kWh per day in summer or more than 17 kWh per day in winter, you pay the second block rate of $0.0914 per kWh.
Note: The normal billing period ranges from 57-63 days. To figure the average kWh use per day, Seattle City Light takes the total number of kWh used and divides by the number of days in the billing period.

Wattage figures may vary. Wattage is generally specified on the appliance.
