NS Power offers area lighting rentals to customers. The most common reasons to rent private area lights are for safety and security purposes, but also to continue to enjoy their outdoor spaces. Residential and commercial customers can rent various wattages of high pressure sodium lights to illuminate private driveways, fields, yards, and parking areas. The lights can be installed on existing poles, or customers can request to have a pole installed. Any connection fees are charged on the first bill, and the ongoing charges for the light will appear on the monthly bill. To request a streetlight repair, please log on to the self-service portal, under the self-serve options.
