Standard streetlighting - Wisconsin


Standard streetlighting (MS-3 rate) is available to municipalities and other government units for lighting roadways and alleys. Fixtures are installed on existing wood poles with overhead 120-volt service wiring and are contracted by local governments.*


In most cases, lights can be installed on existing We Energies poles with no up-front charge. We will provide a quote if additional poles or service conductors are required.

Night Aura lights are connected directly to the We Energies distribution system. Meters are not installed because energy use can be accurately calculated based on the constant wattage and control by photocells.

Lighting cannot be disconnected/reconnected throughout the year.


Monthly charges are based upon the estimated cost of the equipment, maintenance and energy consumed and do not vary from month to month. Installation charges, if any, are separate and will be quoted prior to work being done.

If preferred, a separate lighting account can be created for you.

* Milwaukee, West Allis and Wauwatosa currently have customer-owned alley light agreements with We Energies. Other municipalities may order We Energies owned alley lights.
