City Light Launches New Electrical Service Request Application

The new web application will streamline the submittal process for customers.

Seattle City Light is launching a new Electrical Service Request Application website. The new web-based system will allow for electronic processing of the more than 6,000 electrical service requests that are submitted to the utility each year.

The website will help users easily navigate through the online application for requesting new or upgraded electric services.  Additional instructions and resources will also be provided on the website to assist customers with the application. The new website will allow for faster processing times and instant online communication with City Light’s Customer Care division. Commercial customers will still need to submit paper drawings with their application.
