America’s ‘Greenest Utility’ Overspent, Will Force A 30% Rate Increase For Seattle | The Daily Caller

Evolution of the energy industry and gross mismanagement will ultimately result in higher rates for electricity consumers across the city of Seattle.

Now that council members have passed the utility's new strategic plan, rates will increase by 4.5 percent annually for the next six years. The result will mean more money to keep the lights on. The average residential bill in 2019 will be $65, and this price will climb to $85 by 2024.

Seattle City Light is in desperate financial need of the rate increase.
