Power Restored in Phinney Ridge, Greenwood

Seattle City Light Crews restored power about 8:15 a.m. today for all 2,600 homes and businesses that had been affected by an outage in the Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhoods.

Crews found downed wires at the intersection of 72nd Street and Dayton Avenue that were the cause of the outage, which started about 7:30 a.m. 

The general boundaries of the outage were Third Avenue on the west, Aurora Avenue on the east, 60th Street on the south and 105th Street on the north. Not all customers in that area were affected.

Seattle City Light is the 10th largest 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 energy to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the country to achieve that distinction.
