City Light is updating its Strategic Business Plan. The update covers the years 2017-2022 and supports the utility’s budget and rate proposal for 2017 and 2018. We will have a short presentation and then a Q&A session with City Light representatives.
First adopted by the Seattle City Council in 2012, the plan offers a blueprint for making informed decisions about the future. Each update is an opportunity to gather feedback from customers and stakeholders on how City Light is doing its job – producing and delivering environmentally responsible, safe, affordable and reliable power. The utility provides an update every 2 years and includes a 6 year rate path in the plan.
They are looking for feedback on the progress they have made in achieving the important metrics for their 4 key strategic objectives 1) Improve Customer Experience and Rate Predictability; 2) Increase Workforce Performance and Safety Practices; 3) Enhance Organizational Performance; and 4) Continue Conservation and Environmental Stewardship.
They also would like to seek input on two important new strategic efforts – Transportation Electrification and Climate Adaptation. Finally, they plan to roll out their draft 6 year rate path and also discuss opportunities for continued innovation the energy efficiency sector.
Their customer and stakeholder outreach effort on the update is during the month of April, so your participation at this meeting would be appreciated. The plan is expected to be transmitted from the Mayor to the Council in June with adoption by the Council in late July.
*All attendees are invited to stay for NEEC’s free Power Hour social networking event afterwards. This is an informal gathering with complimentary beer, wine, and light snacks. Please indicate on the RSVP if you plan to attend.
