Seattle City Light offers Net Metering to customers who wish to generate their own electricity with fuel cells, solar, wind or hydro powered electric systems of 25 kilowatts or less in generating capacity. Net excess generation is credited to the customer's next monthly bill. At the beginning of each calendar year, any remaining unused kilowatt-hour credit accumulated during the previous year must be granted to the utility, without any compensation to the customer. Net metering packets are available from the Web site or by contacting the Conservation Hotline: (206) 684-3800 or Account Services: (206) 684-3000.
