Little or no upfront capital required.
In most of our lease situations, the initial capital cost of the lighting system installation is not required upfront. We offer a low total cost of ownership* – all for one affordable monthly price.
Convenient, 24/7 support and worry-free maintenance.
We take on all the performance and maintenance risk – so you don’t have to. We cover all normal wear and tear, storm damage, car accidents – everything. That means we’re motivated to install the highest quality, most reliable products – and that you are free from any unexpected labor and material costs.
Design and product selection expertise provided at no additional charge.
We’ll walk you through our product catalog and explain the pros and cons of each fixture and technology. Our experienced and skilled team of lighting designers will complete a photometric layout showing pole spacing, light levels, distribution and light performance for your location. It’s all included – and all part of what you can expect from your area’s premium outdoor lighting provider.
Industry leader in emerging outdoor lighting technology.
Our affordable pricing enables you to take advantage of new technology without deploying significant resources, for just one monthly price. This allows you to choose energy- and money-saving, sustainable lighting options like LEDs. LEDs offer better performance and fewer outages with significantly lower energy use – making it easier for you to meet sustainability goals like LEED certification. Learn more about LEDs.
