Due to the dwindling supply of Metal Halide bulbs, and the expected “End of Life” of non-LED bulbs. BCES is moving to LED Outdoor Lighting Fixtures.
BCES will offer two forms of Outdoor Lighting for Commercial and Residential Customers. Currently, the following fixtures are available as of (11/8/2021):
- WatchLight Series WL1 LED (Standard Residential Outdoor Light with Diffuser)
- 75LED Ultraflood (Flood Light)
Outdoor lights may be installed on existing Distributor poles if there is an existing 120-volt circuit on the pole. If a pole must be installed for the light, there will be a One Hundred Fifty Dollar ($150.00) charge in addition to the above-mentioned charge.
A customer must have a pay rating of “Average” or better to qualify for an outdoor light and have active service with BCES. If any additional customer charges are required, they must be paid in full or billed to the active BCES account prior to construction.
All outdoor lights must be attached to a Distributor pole and the Distributor will
not install a transformer that will only service an outdoor light. Customers turning off a service may opt to leave an outdoor light on for lighting purposes and will continue to pay a monthly bill for said outdoor light applications.
All outdoor lights must be attached to a Distributor pole and the Distributor will not install a transformer that will only serve an outdoor light unless approved by the General Manager prior to installation for example special events, venue, or commercial lighting.
Customers will receive a free month's service on their Outdoor Light if it is
reported out and not repaired within five days. This free month would not apply during
severe storms and other emergency outage events.
