Charles Mix Electric sells and installs a small variety of outdoor lighting to our members. With LED (light emitting diode) technology reaching maturity, prices of the units have dropped substantially, quality of the lights has increased substantially and operating costs are 1/2 to 2/3s of the previous technology. Reliability has increased substantially and light pollution free models are readily available.
The following is what is presently available. Prices may vary and the cost of a pole and pole installation is extra.
