Security Lights


BrightRidge offers the installation of automatic, dusk-to-dawn security lights for residential and commercial/industrial customers. Outdoor lighting on your property can: add security by discouraging vandals and prowlers, add safety by preventing accidents, and increase outdoor living time for recreation and entertainment.

Security light charges are added to monthly energy charges. The standard monthly lamp charge covers the cost of electricity (kWh’s) for the light(s), maintenance, and installation of the light fixture. BrightRidge retains ownership of all lights and poles installed through this program.

There is an additional monthly charge of $10.00 if a pole is installed for the light and $5.00 if a transformer is installed for the light. There is also a one-time connect fee of $100.00 per light and $75 for each additional light installed. High Pressure Sodium, Mercury Vapor, and Incandescent lights are no longer available for new installs.

Material costs for decorative lights and poles must be paid prior to installation, in addition to the one-time connect fee.  Monthly pole charges do not apply to decorative poles.

If you wish to install a fixture at a location other than where a pole is already in place, BrightRidge will apply the monthly pole charge and potentially a monthly transformer charge.  Any other special installation may also require an aid to construction charge, in addition to the stated charges.

*Note that lighting rates will fluctuate due to TVA’s Energy Power Cost Adjustment, which changes monthly.
