City Light Seeks Customer Comments on Advanced Meters



Photo of advanced meterSeattle City Light is scheduled to start replacing its aging electrical meters with advanced meters that provide two-way communication in 2015.

As a part of the planning process for that transition, City Light is asking its customers to share any comments, questions or concerns they might have about advanced meters. We want to hear from you.

The utility has scheduled three community forums to discuss the new technology.

Seattle City Light is always looking for innovative ways to improve customer service and increase our efficiency.

Advanced metering is a technology that allows customers more control over their utility bills. The meters also help keep electric rates low by streamlining many of the processes that are currently done by hand. These meters send information directly to City Light, so we won’t have to dispatch a meter reader to your home. That means fewer vehicle trips, reduced emissions and other environmental benefits.

Advanced meters will help us provide better service by improving our ability to pinpoint areas affected by power outages, which allows us to more quickly restore service to affected customers.
