In today’s competitive landscape, your business needs to stand out from the crowd. Tampa Electric’s Bright Choices Outdoor Lighting Solutions can help. Our maintenance-free, customizable, energy-efficient lighting options can help you increase visibility, save energy and create a safe atmosphere for your customers and employees. Proper lighting also stimulates the senses, with the potential to generate an emotional connection to your business and improve sales.

Choose a leader in outdoor lighting.

Tampa Electric has been serving the Tampa Bay community with electric lights for more than 100 years. Today, we maintain more than 240,000 street and area lights across West Central Florida. In addition to lighting our neighborhoods and streets, our lights illuminate businesses large and small, from retail destinations like Armature Works to industrial parking lots.


Save energy and meet your sustainability goals.

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the environment and offer more value, we’ve invested $135 million into upgrading our existing outdoor street and area lights to energy-efficient, Light-Emitting Diodes (LED) technology by the end of 2023. LEDs use 30 to 60 percent less energy than traditional lighting and can that increases nighttime visibility and minimizes glare.

Create a welcoming atmosphere.

The Bright Choices team can help you create custom lighting designs and functionality that put you ahead of the competition. By working together, we can create custom, maintenance-free solar lights with battery storage, architectural lighting designs, façade lighting and innovative poles and fixtures.

For example, “Verreawood” is one of our newest Bright Choices custom lighting designs. Our team worked with one of our pole manufacturing partners to develop this non-standard aluminum light pole with the appearance of wood and cast-iron fittings. The warm, ranch-style aesthetics make it very popular in residential settings.

Go beyond lighting with smart technology.

Our Bright Choices Outdoor Lighting staff are not only identifying and developing new products and technologies for our customers, but they are also leveraging a broader set of partners in the industry and working directly with manufacturers and developers to sustain innovative new products such as:

  • Advertising and communication capabilities: Speakers, Programmable Digital Signage, Banners, Virtual Fiber, Small Cell (5G) Infrastructure, community wi-fi and Data Collection
  • Security features: High-definition cameras, Gunshot Detection, and Emergency Blue Light notification
  • Transportation solutions: Wayfinding, Traffic and Streetlight Control, and lighting for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations
