Who do I call if a street light is out on our street?

PPL, Inc. is responsible for fixing public street lights when they are not working. In initiate a work request to fix the problem, you have two options. First, you can contact the Township Public Works department at 569-6406 ext. 1129 and explain the location and/or provide the pole number and the Township will contact PPL, Inc. to arrange for the repair. Second, you can contact PPL, Inc. Directly. For PPL Electric Utilities-owned lights that number is the customer contact center at 1-800-DIAL-PPL (1-800-342-5775). Please note that PPL, Inc. likes to have the unique pole number from the street light pole to make sure their service staff are able to find the proper location of the problem. The PPL service folks may take a clear description of the pole location, if it is difficult to find the pole number or reach the pole on a busy street. Each pole with a street light should have a small silver placard located at eye level on the pole containing a two line PPL pole number (i.e. PPL Co., 40486; 527907). Anyone can call go through this process to report a broken street light or an electrical outage.
