Seattle City Light Thanks Green Up Customers for Supporting Renewable Energy

Clean, affordable hydroelectricity supplies 90 percent of Seattle City Light’s power.  Add to that a zero carbon footprint and a 35 year history of energy conservation, and you can see why we are the nation’s greenest utility. 

The Pacific Northwest outside of City Light’s service territory is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels.  So we’d like to thank our Green Up participants for making a big difference in our region by supporting new renewable energy sources. 

From January to October 2014, City Light Green Up participants added 80,760 megawatt-hours of clean, green energy to our region’s power grid, avoiding the release of 108 million pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.  That’s the equivalent of planting 1,258,873 tree seedlings or taking 10,337 cars off Seattle’s streets.

Way to go!  You’re making a difference every day.
