City Light to Host Online Open House for Integrated Resource Plan

Seattle City Light is developing a 2016 Integrated Resource Plan that serves as a long-term plan for how the utility will meet customer power requirements over the next 20 years.

When it comes to managing your energy, how would you balance cost, risk and the environment? Seattle City Light is developing a 2016 Integrated Resource Plan that serves as a long-term plan for how the utility will meet customer power requirements over the next 20 years. The publicly-owned utility relies on a mix of resources to fulfill its customers’ energy needs.

Seattle City Light will host an online open house to share information on the utility’s Integrated Resource Plan. The plan will look at how the utility makes future supply decisions about conservation, technology, costs, greenhouse gases, climate impacts and more. The online open house is an effort by City Light to inform customers and stakeholders about the Integrated Resource Plan so they can provide their input.

The online open house will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from noon to 1 p.m.
