For More Information Contact:

Seattle City Light crews have restored power to Seattle Center after working on repairs to a failed underground vault that briefly left 6,800 customers in Queen Anne without power this morning.

Power was shut off this afternoon to work on those repairs, affecting about 360 customers on the Seattle Center grounds, 50-70 businesses nearby, and two apartment complexes. Power was restored at approximately 7 p.m.

The area affected is generally from Queen Anne Avenue North on the west; to Taylor Avenue North on the east; Denny Way on the south; and, Mercer Street on the north. Not everyone within these boundaries lost power.

Seattle City Light is the ninth largest public electric utility in the United States. It has 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.
