At Seattle City Light, we power Seattle. As a community owned utility, public service is at the core of our mission. We are dedicated to delivering customers affordable, reliable, and environmentally responsible electricity services. City Light is a recognized national leader in energy efficiency and environmental stewardship and strives to fulfill its mission in a socially responsible manner.
City Light’s Electrification and Strategic Technology Division is responsible for creating the utility’s energy future and oversees the utility’s efforts related to transportation and building electrification, grid modernization and strategic technology. Within the Electrification and Strategic Technology Division, the Lighting Design Lab is a regional resource and education hub for strategic technologies and leads the development of the utility’s building electrification strategy.
The Lighting Design Lab is seeking an inspired intern who can help shape the utility’s near- and long-term building electrification strategy. Our municipal electric utility has an important role to play in the evolving decarbonization objectives of Washington state, the City of Seattle, and our individual customers. Particularly with recent and developing legislation around buildings, we want to better understand how our customers are impacted and how the utility can best support them and the trade ally community through this transition. The intern will collaborate with staff from across City departments and utility divisions to analyze and ultimately develop visualizations of how state and local policies are impacting our customers, trade allies, and utility. The intern will lead additional projects (as assigned or self-identified by the intern) to support the development of the utility’s building electrification strategy. The intern will report to the Building Electrification Strategic Advisor.
