A Progress Report On Your Power Future

On Monday, July 25, 2016 the Seattle City Council voted to approve Resolution 31678, adopting the Seattle City Light 2017-2022 Strategic
Plan and endorsing a six-year rate path required to support the Strategic Plan.

The next step is for the utility to prepare the 2017 and 2018 rate ordinance implementing the first two years of the Strategic Plan, which will be approved by the Mayor and adopted by the City Council in September 2016. The new rates take effect in January 2017.

City Light would like to give a special thanks to the City Light Review Panel for their dedication, hard work and providing the utility with input and oversight during the development of the Strategic Plan documents. City Light also appreciate its customers, stakeholders and employees that shared their feedback during meetings, online surveys or by email and letter.

View the Strategic Plan documents under the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan Update tab.

The Seattle City Light Strategic Plan Update highlights the progress the utility is making to realize its vision and goal to exceed customers' expectations in producing and delivering environmentally responsible, safe, affordable and reliable power.

In 2012, Seattle City Light completed a strategic planning process to develop a road map for how to best meet customers' current and future needs. Led by the City Light executive team, the process actively involved City Light employees, customers, the Seattle City Light Review Panel, other City department personnel, community members, and business leaders. .

The plan was adopted by City Council in May 2012 and the two-year update adopted in 2014. City Light is now in the process of completing its next two-year update to the plan.

The 2017-2022 Strategic Plan provides a blueprint for making informed decisions about the future. The plan is updated to reflect current conditions, incorporate necessary adjustments and provide a report on progress being made. This is an opportunity to gather community input on how City Light is doing on meeting and exceeding customers' expectations in producing and delivering on the promises of the strategic plan.
