STREET LIGHT INFORMATION:

If you notice a street light out in your area, first, check the top of the light fixture. If the fixture has a "red cap" on top of it, the light was deliberately shut off. If the light does not have a red cap, you can report it to National Grid. Please click the link below to contact National Grid.
