Philadelphia's 100,000 streetlights are owned by the city and repaired by a combination of contractors, electrical utility and city workers. The contractor responds to all service complaints, inspects the lights not working and replaces all defective lamps and photocontrols. The electric utility (PECO) provides power to all streetlights and repairs aerial and underground utility lines. City workers repair all knockdown street light poles, defective luminaries and replace obsolete equipment with modern fixtures.
Citizens are asked to be sure to have gates unlocked and a clear path to the light fixture in alleys.
