At the January 6, 2010 Energy, Technology and Civil Rights Committee there was discussion of City Light’s 2009 accomplishments that was highlighted by the progress the Utility has made in significantly decreasing streetlight outages. The discussion included a description of the group re-lamping implementation and the next phases. This will significantly decrease streetlight outages even more.

Examples of Accomplishments:

26,000 or 8% of City Light customers are signed up for e-billing

System reliability—outage frequency below goal of 1 per year

400 line miles of trees trimmed—increase of 100 miles from the previous year—this amidst budget cuts

Financial stability—improved bond rating AA-/ Aa2

$64 million in Capital Improvement and Operations & Management reductions
