City Light is excited to announce that advanced meters are the new meter standard for City Light’s service territory. In October 2016, City Light started the installation of advanced meters on new residential and small commercial construction projects under normal business operations. The majority of residential and commercial customers will begin receiving new meters in the summer of 2017. This is an incremental approach, with benefits realized` once the entire system is installed by 2019. Customers who do not wish to receive the benefits of an advanced meter can choose to opt out.

Seattle City Light is the nation's greenest utility. We are committed to providing our customers with industry-leading service and reliability while empowering them to make energy-saving choices. As part of this commitment, we will begin replacing electric meters with advanced meters in 2017.

Advanced Metering is a building block for a more efficient electric system, often called the smart grid. It will provide many benefits to customers and greatly improve operational efficiencies within City Light. The meters will:
  • Empower customers to make energy-saving choices
  • Improve customer service
  • Reduce environmental impact
See a map with our meter deployment schedule for more information.

Advanced Metering is one of several strategic initiatives in the Seattle City Light Strategic Plan. This plan provides a roadmap for making informed decisions about the future of the utility.
