Burnt-out Street Lights
To report a burnt-out street light, please send us an email with the location and your contact information, in case we have questions. You can file an online request for a replacement.
New Lights in Residential Areas
You can request a new street light on a public street in your neighborhood. If the new light can be installed on an existing PSE utility pole, there is typically no cost to the resident. Installation requires the approval of all residents within 100 feet of the new street light.
