An underground power cable failed about 7 a.m. today, cutting service to about 2,900 homes and businesses in the Delridge area for an hour until Seattle City Light crews restored power.
The general boundaries of the outage were SW holly Street on the north, SW 106th Street on the south, 17th Avenue SW on the east and 46th Avenue SW on the west. Not all customers within those boundaries were affected.
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.
