For Public Street Lighting Service

The above rates for Standard Public Street Lighting Service are based on the costs of standard overhead service and standard wood poles. The Customer will be required to pay a one-time contribution-in-aide-of construction (CIAC) to cover the additional costs of any non-standard lighting service requested by the Customer. Non-standard public street lighting service consists of installations requiring more than one wood pole and special poles, transformers, line extensions, non-standard fixtures and lamps, or underground service. The CIAC shall be based on the difference between the cost to provide standard service and the actual cost of the non-standard service as per current standard cost .

Ownership of System-Service Lines

The Corporation will furnish, provide, install, own, operate and maintain the necessary transmission and distribution lines, wires, conduits, conductors, cables, masts, towers, poles, posts, transformers, lamps, fixtures and other appliances and structures for furnishing public street lighting service to Customer.

The Corporation shall erect the service lines necessary to supply electric energy to the said public street lighting system within the limits of the public streets and highways or on private property as mutually agreed upon by the Corporation and Customer. Customer shall assist the Corporation, if necessary, in obtaining adequate written easements covering permission to install and maintain any service lines which it may be desirable to install upon private property.

The Corporation shall not be required to pay for obtaining permission to trim or re-trim trees where such trees interfere with any service lines or wires of the Corporation used for supplying electric energy to the public street lighting system.

Customer shall assist the Corporation, if necessary, in obtaining permission to trim trees when the Corporation is unable to obtain such permission through its own best efforts.

Lighting Hours

The lighting hours for the public street lighting system shall be on an “all-night” schedule which provides that lamps are to be lighted from approximately one-half (1/2) hour after sunset until approximately one-half (1/2) hour before sunrise each day in the year, approximately 4,000 hours per annum.

Maintenance of Lighting System

The Corporation will repair and/or replace and maintain all equipment owned by the Corporation, including lamps and glassware, which may be necessary to provide continuous operation of the public street lighting system when such maintenance or replacement is not the result of vandalism or damage caused by the Customer. In the event of vandalism or damage caused by the Customer, maintenance or replacement of the equipment will be at the expense of the Customer.

Changes in Lamp Location

The Corporation will change the location of any lamp or lamps constituting part of the public street lighting system which are, or may be, installed and/or operated under this rate schedule. Any such change in lamp location will be made only upon written order from Customer. The actual cost and expense of making each such change in lamp location shall be borne by the Customer.

Other Than Public Authorities: The Corporation may require from applicants for public street lighting a service deposit equal to five years estimated charges before the public street lighting system is constructed.

Deposits made with the Corporation will draw interest at the rate of four percent (4%) annually and will be credited to the Customer’s account at the termination of each contract year.
