Seattle City Light has started the process of relicensing three large dams in the North Cascades that supply the utility with about a third of its power. The utility will go through a detailed federal process over the next five years, to meet regulations to keep operating the 100-year-old Skagit River Hydroelectric Project. The current license was enacted in 1995 and expires on April 30, 2025.
