Outdoor Lighting Service

Request New Outdoor Lighting

For year-round outdoor lighting of yards, driveways, walkways, roads and other areas FKEC offers two LED outdoor lighting options to our members. The lights are electrically connected so that the power for operation of the light does not pass through the member’s electric meter. Instead, the monthly charge is based on the calculated kilowatt hour (kWh) used per lamp depending on its size. Each light contains a photocell that automatically turns on at dusk and off at dawn.

Benefits of LED Lighting

  • Uses less energy and provides better light quality
  • A very long life, which improves reliability and reduces operating costs
  • Provides lighting on the ground with zero upward light pollution
  • Produces a more desirable white color

New outdoor lights are installed on existing FKEC distribution facilities only (no meter poles) however, the presence of a pole does not guarantee it is capable of a light installation. Our Engineering personnel will make the determination.

For more information on obtaining a new outdoor lighting fixture, please call (305) 852-2431.
