Each streetlight contains a photocell that automatically turns on at dusk and off at dawn. The lighting provides visibility at night - critical to the safety and security of your property from theft, vandalism and other crimes.
For the most common types of lights, a fixed monthly charge runs from about $7 to $40 dollars per light. The fixed charge is not based on the amount of electricity used, but rather the type of fixture used.
Poles are billed separately from light fixtures. Wood poles range in price from about $5 to $14 per month. Concrete poles range from about $12 to $20 per month. If EPB Electric Power installs a new pole with the light fixture, a 3-year contract is required. Other miscellaneous charges may apply. EPB Electric Power maintains ownership of all lights and poles under the EPB Electric Power lighting program.
