The Utility has begun the process of converting the HPS bulbs to light emitting diode (LED) fixtures. The Utility will continue this process replacing the HPS bulbs to make all lighting in the City LED. All existing 100, 250 and 400 watt high pressure sodium and 175 watt mercury lighting will be replaced at the end of life or at the request of the customer at no additional charge.


Available for outdoor lighting customers within the service area of the Utility.


a) Where the lighting can be installed on an existing distribution-type wood pole or other supporting device and served from existing secondary facilities, with no more than one span of secondary, the rates shall be:

  • $ 7.31 per light for single 48 watt LED fixture.
  • $ 9.90 per light for single 110 watt LED fixture. 

b) Where additional poles and spans of overhead secondary are required to provide outdoor lighting, the following additional monthly charges shall apply:

  • 84¢ for each additional pole
  • 56¢ for each additional span of wire.
