Application for Electric Service Introduction
If you’re interested in applying for new or upgraded electric service in Seattle City Light's service territory, you’ve come to the right place.
The first step in the process is to complete an application for electric service. The application is your primary means of communicating the important details about your electrical project to Seattle City Light. The application for electric service must be completed online. It will walk you through a series of questions about your project. You’ll need to provide specific details about the type and size of the electrical service you’re requesting. You’ll also be provided a list of the necessary supporting documents to be submitted with your application, which will vary depending on the type of project you’re requesting.
In the beginning of application you will be asked to enter an email address and the service address. An Application ID will be generated and an application session will be created. With this Application ID, you'll be able to access the application session. The Application ID enables you to save your application information and return to it at a later time in case you're not able to complete the form. Once your application is complete, you can submit it for review.
After your application is reviewed by Seattle City Light, you will receive a confirmation email with your service request number and Electrical Service Representative (ESR) contact information. A Seattle City Light representative will guide you through the entire process and will answer your questions and/or concerns for the requested service.
