Private Area Lighting

We offer a variety of private area floodlighting designed to provide added safety and security in parking lots, walkways, and just about any area within distance of our existing utility poles.

These lights are completely automatic, coming on at dusk and turning themselves off at dawn. We furnish the fixture, install it on existing poles, and maintain and operate the lights—all for a flat monthly fee.

To learn more about our private area lighting program, contact the O&R New Business Services office nearest you.
