Outdoor Lighting Program

Valley city lit up against a night sky.


Our Dusk to Dawn lighting program allows contractors to lease streetlights and other electrical equipment to save on energy costs while keeping their gated properties, parking lots and alleyways safe and well-lit. You can also supply your own equipment, then pay for set-up and maintenance in installments to avoid higher up-front costs.

How the Program Works

  1. Decide where you will source your lighting, poles and other equipment. You may use developer equipment, APS equipment or your own, depending on your municipality.
  2. Initiate a streetlight request through your city or county.
  3. After your requests are approved, contact a local project representative through the APS Construction Contacts Map to request an electrical design.
  4. Once received, send the designs to the city or county for approval on any modifications.
  5. Developers are responsible for installing the lighting independently or through a contractor. If APS equipment is used, we may cover installation and maintenance costs.
  6. Regardless of who installs the equipment or where it is sourced, APS must inspect all streetlights and facilities.
  7. Sign the 10-year contract and enjoy sustainable lighting throughout your property.

Schedule Your Pre-Construction Meeting

Before you start building, we recommend setting up a meeting with our electrical experts. You must be the property owner, or have written permission from the property owner, to join the Dusk to Dawn program. You will be required to provide your address, desired pole location and account number. If you are not the property owner, please also bring a copy of your lease to prove you will stay at the property for the duration of the contract.

Call 602-371-7171 to schedule a meeting.
