Standard streetlighting

Standard streetlighting is available to municipalities and other government units for lighting roadways, alleys and other public areas. 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 a reasonable up-front charge. We will provide a quote if additional poles or service conductors are required.

Outdoor lighting is connected directly to the We Energies distribution system. Meters are not installed because energy use can be calculated accurately 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.
