Wrap-A-Post :: First Step
Utility poles are usually owned by your local
utility company. The first step is to acquire their
permission to do your project. It is always
better if you can get your utility company to be
an eager participant in your revitalization
Utilities usually provide power and maintenance
for a town’s standard street lighting at a set rate
per fixture. We have found that some utilities
have no desire to get into decorative street
A utility company we have been dealing with is willing to allow the town to attach
decorative posts and lighting fixtures to its poles, but is requiring the town to be
responsible for their upkeep and power consumption.
If a town was to install regular lamp posts, the utility company would usually run
the power to a meter and then underground from post to post. The same method
can be applied with the Wrap-a-Post product, or you could utilize solar power.
