Two Strategic Planning Sessions Set for June

SEATTLE City Councilmember Bruce Harrell, the Seattle City Light Review Panel and Superintendent Jorge Carrasco are inviting the community to help chart City Lights future by participating in the public utilitys strategic planning.

Participants will help determine City Lights approach for at least the next six years on issues such as conservation and energy efficiency, rates, power reliability, infrastructure maintenance and upgrades, new technology and more.

We need to know what kind of utility our customer-owners want, Carrasco said. Id like to hear from as many residents and business customers as possible so that together we can make the best decisions for our community.

As an elected official, its important that the voice of our customers is included in this process, adds Seattle City Councilmember Bruce Harrell who chairs the City Council Energy, Technology and Civil Rights Committee.

Strategic planning sessions are scheduled:

June 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Northgate Community Center, 10510 Northgate Ave. NE

June 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Seattle Community Colleges Georgetown campus, 6737 Courson Ave. S

As an added incentive, everyone who participates will receive a free, energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulb.

Seattle City Light is the 10th 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.
