How Greenlight Districts are Identified and Built

  1. Residents sign-up at GreenlightNetworks.com to show interest in their neighborhood.
  2. The Greenlight engineering team performs an initial study. This study includes looking at the cost and complexity of building the district, how many easements are required, what permits need to be obtained from the municipality and for which utility poles Greenlight needs to apply.

  4. Once the study is complete, the engineering process begins in select districts, utility poles are applied for and needs for easements are identified.
