Street Lighting

SMECO offers a variety of street lights to enhance both the safety and the aesthetic appeal of your community. All street lights are dark sky compliant with 100 percent total cutoff (no upward light).

Below are our offerings along with the associated costs. Along with the monthly rental charge, 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 associated costs for the directional boring to install any line underneath sidewalks or driveways. 

If you would like these lights in your community, or if you have any questions, please contact SMECO. We also offer Residential Area Lights for customers who would like outdoor lights at their homes.
