Southwest Iowa REC’s security light program offers outdoor lighting that enhances your enjoyment of country living and is an excellent value. The cooperative will install and maintain a dusk-to-dawn light on the member-owner’s meter pole under its rental program.
Effective January 1, 2022, Southwest Iowa REC will switch from installing 150-watt high-pressure sodium light fixtures to 50-watt LED light fixtures whenever a new light is installed or a repair is needed to an existing non-LED light. We will not upgrade your light to LED until your existing light stops working. A $5 monthly rental charge will be charged per LED light installed after January 1, 2022 and the energy consumed by the light will continue to be registered through your electric meter and billed accordingly. Southwest Iowa REC will continue to maintain your LED light as necessary at no extra charge for members on the rental program.
