Power Mostly Restored In University District

City Light crews have restored power to all but 837 customers in the University District area, in an outage that originally affected more than 2,000 customers. The outage began at about 6 p.m., and was caused by a downed wire.

The remaining outage affects the area just north of the University of Washington.

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.
