Residential Area Lights

Area lights are for customer-members who want to have an outdoor light installed at their home. All area lights are dark sky compliant with 100 percent total cutoff (no upward light).

Each light includes an installation charge based on the length of underground electric lines to power the light, as well as on the type of labor necessary to install the lines. If the line will cross an open field where installation simply involves digging a trench, the installation charge is $11.49 per foot of underground line. SMECO will charge the current directional bore fee to install any line underneath sidewalks or driveways.

Three types of lights are available. (All rates are subject to change.)
