WCMES will provide outdoor lighting on a rental basis. The rate will be shown as a separate listing on your electric bill.
WCMES can provide yard lighting as well as flood lighting for parking lots and larger areas. The yard light will be a 64 watt LED. The flood lighting will be a 400 watt or 1000 watt Metal Halide.
All WCMES lighting will be installed on WCMES poles. If a pole needs to be installed to get the light where you want it, a pole charge will be added to the monthly rate.
The installation charge for a light is $25 for the light and $75 for a pole if needed. See rates for the monthly rental and pole charges.
If you presently have an outdoor light that is a 175 watt Mercury Vapor or 100 watt High Pressure Sodium and it fails, WCMES will install a 64 watt LED in its place. Since the LED is slightly higher in price each month, you will be given the option to keep it or have it removed.
If you are interested in WCMES Outdoor Lighting, please contact WCMES and ask for the Engineering Department. A field Engineer will come out and help you assess where your new light will need to be installed.
DARK FIBER LEASING
WCMES owns and maintains several miles of single mode fiber optic cable. Each fiber optic cable contains several fibers, more than enough to meet our needs. WCMES will lease out the excess dark fiber(s) to customers who want access to high speed internet or point to point connection. WCMES has connection with all bordering Counties. WCMES does not offer internet content. Customers can get access to the internet through other vendors while using WCMES dark fiber as the connection means.
If you would like to obtain a fiber connection it is possible you can do it using WCMES dark fiber. If you are interested, contact the WCMES Engineering Department for more details.

DISTRIBUTED GENERATION SYSTEMS
Customers are often unaware that connection of any type of Distributed Generation system, such as windmills, solar panels, etc., to the Customer’s premises wiring constitutes a Grid Interconnection. Distributed Generation systems may interject electric power onto the electric grid by parallel operation and reverse flow through the revenue meter. Such parallel operation presents a safety hazard to WCMES employees and raise questions about payment for excess energy generated. This Operating Policy outlines the conditions under which Distributed Generation systems will be permitted to be inter-connected with the WCMES distribution system.
