Outdoor Lighting Info

Tideland EMC is in the process of replacing all outdoor lighting with LED fixtures. It will take several years for us to complete the six-county retrofit. If you have an existing outdoor light and it is in need of service, our crews will go ahead and change the light out to the new LED equivalent fixture while they are at the location.

The lighting rates below do not include applicable NC sales tax.

Monthly price assumes that the outdoor lighting fixture can be attached to an existing electric utility pole. Tideland EMC is responsible for the energy used by the outdoor light and normal maintenance. If the outdoor light cannot be attached to an existing pole, a pole charge of $2.10 per pole per month will be added to the monthly bill. Additional one time installation fee may apply for underground service. Developers or property owners associations should contact us for bulk pricing and quotes on decorative fixtures.
