  Summer 2015 Program Update
  • City Light is currently evaluating three different network systems that can provide two-way communication between your meter and City Light. We will select the metering system in summer 2015.

  • We’ve updated our website! Now you can find answers to common questions, read topic sheets in the resources, and learn about power delivery.

In 2016, Seattle City Light will begin replacing its existing electric meters across its service area with a new generation of meters called advanced meters (also known as smart meters).

Advanced Metering will reduce costs, increase system reliability, improve customer service, empower customers to make energy-saving choices, and support City Light’s efforts to remain the Nation’s Greenest Utility.

Advanced Metering will provide many benefits to customers and greatly improve operational efficiencies within City Light. The meters will:
  • Empower customers to make energy-saving choices

  • Enable improved customer service

  • Reduce pollution

  • Conserve natural resources
Visit our project schedule for more information.

Advanced Metering is part of the Seattle City Light Strategic Plan. This plan provides a roadmap for making informed decisions about the future of the utility.
