@15, power service isn't free: dams require maintenance and staff to perform that maintenance. Big storms such as the one this weekend require staff to be on call around the clock to swiftly respond to power outages. The rate increases going into effect are largely to cover the costs of a new substation in South Lake Union, because there's been such an increase in demand for electric power there, with Amazon's new buildings and all the new multifamily going in as well. This is the first substation construction project City Light has undertaken in 30 years. Once the rate increases have taken effect, City Light will still offer one of the lowest electric rates in the country.
