Outdoor Lighting

A commercial building using High Pressure Sodium (HPS) outdoor lighting has a greenish yellow light on the left side and the same building has bright white lighting with LED lighting on the right side.

Outdoor lighting can illuminate yards, sidewalks, streets and parking lots. Jackson EMC offers outdoor lighting options as an additional security measure for personal property and businesses.

Jackson EMC is beginning to offer light-emitting diode (LED) lighting fixtures for outdoor lighting. With LED lighting, the areas lit by LED lights appear whiter than areas lit by traditional lights.

Other benefits of LEDs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, include:

  • Longer life:
     LEDs last 25 times longer, reducing the need to replace bulbs as often as incandescent lighting

  • Improved energy efficiency:
     LEDs use 75% less energy than traditional bulbs

  • Focused light:
     LEDs emit light in a specific direction, putting more light directly where it’s needed in an area

LED lighting is widely available for homes and businesses. With manufacturers producing fewer high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs, the options to replace those bulbs as they age or malfunction are limited. Jackson EMC is gradually replacing existing outdoor lights, when needed, to LED lighting. New installations of outdoor lighting will use LED lighting.

Contact Jackson EMC at 1-800-462-3691 to get a customized survey of your outdoor lighting installation options and pricing.  

To report an outage of an existing outdoor light, please submit a request at MyJacksonEMC.com or via the MyJacksonEMC mobile app.
