Security Lights

JCPB 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 your monthly energy charges. The standard monthly lamp charge covers the cost of electricity for the light(s), maintenance, and installation of the light fixture. JCPB 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 $60.00 per light. Mercury vapor lights are no longer available for new installs. Note that lighting rates may fluctuation due to TVA’s Energy Power Cost Adjustment, which fluctuates monthly.

Customers interested in obtaining a security light should contact the Engineering Department at 423-952-5034. An appointment will be scheduled for a JCPB Engineer to meet with you at your home or business to determine the best location for the light.
