Mayor Greg Nickels and Seattle City Light invite customers to apply for membership on the Seattle City Light Rates Advisory Committee (RAC). A cross-section of citizen and business representatives are sought to provide input and comment during regular City Light rate reviews. The RAC considers the full range of rate-setting issues. Applications are currently being accepted to create a pool of citizens interested in serving on the RAC.

What We Are Looking For:

  • Any resident or business owner utilizing Seattle City Light's service is eligible for membership.
  • A fair amount of technical material will be involved, however you are not expected to be an expert on rates.
  • We encourage applications from a diverse group of individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests:
    • Residential, commercial, industrial
    • Various ethnic groups
    • Various income levels
    • Homeowners, renters, landlords
    • Various neighborhoods
    • Various special public interests such as environment and conservation
Other Important Facts:
  • Members serve without compensation. The majority of the meetings will be held in downtown Seattle. Parking will be provided at no charge.
  • Meetings will start this summer for a brief review of Suburban rates. The general rate review is expected to begin in early 2004 and may extend through November, 2004. The full Committee meets at least once a month during this time. Additional subcommittee work could require a greater time commitment.
