PART III. EXPLANATORY NOTES FOR PARTS I AND II

  1. If the cooperative is required to install a pole for the exclusive purpose of rendering outdoor lighting, then the consumer will be required to pay, prior to construction, a non-refundable construction charge of the amount set forth in the pole section below.

  2. In the event the cooperative is required to replace an existing cooperative-owned mercury vapor system with a high pressure sodium system not requiring greater mounting height, then the consumer will be required to pay the cooperative $50.00 for each mercury vapor luminary removed.

  3. In the event the cooperative is required to replace an existing cooperative-owned mercury vapor system requiring greater height than that which is achievable on existing poles, then the consumer will be required to pay the cooperative a construction charge to cover the cost of rearranging facilities.

  4. The consumer may be required to reimburse the cooperative for any maintenance work, which is required because of vandalism.

  5. If the consumer requests a change in a lighting fixture within one year of initial installation a non-refundable charge of $100 will be assessed.

a. Residential Neighborhoods – Underground streetlight wiring is available only in residential areas served by underground distribution system where the underground streetlight cable is buried in the same trench with the distribution system and the excess trench does not exceed eighty-five (85) feet per pole. A construction charge will be assessed amounting to $2.25 per foot for trenching in excess of eighty-five (85) feet per pole. Where paving or other obstructions exist, the consumer will be required to perform all trenching, install duct furnished by the cooperative, backfill and complete the paving to the mutual satisfaction of all parties concerned.
