It’s official: Utility rates are going up in Seattle.
The City Council has unanimously voted to approve a six-year plan by Seattle City Light that will increase rates about 4.7 percent for six straight years, starting in January. That will initially be about $2.90 per household.
The rate increase will, in part, allow City Light to build its first new substation in more than 30 years.
