Report Public Lighting or Street Light Fault
Report It - Public Lighting issues and information on how to report them
Airtricity Utility Solutions (AUS) are contracted by Cork County Council to provide and maintain Public Lighting in Cork County.
You can report a fault directly to Airtricity by clicking on the following icon:
or Call Airtricity at Freephone: 1800 372 772.
You may need to provide the following information:
The town or village and street name.
The location of the light (for example, outside house number 5).
The number on the pole.
Your name and contact number.
Each pole is numbered
If the light isn’t numbered it is unlikely to be maintained by Airtricity and hence unlikely to be in the charge of Cork County Council. In this case, the developer of the estate is still responsible for the lights. Please report any faults on such lights to the developer.
Should you witness a street lighting unit being knocked over, or indeed any other situation you feel requires immediate attention, do not hesitate to contact Airtricity at the above number and emphasise that the matter is urgent. If you fear that a pole may be live as a result of an accident or whatever and if you fail to get an immediate response from Airtricity due to out of hours etc. you should ring the ESB Emergency Lo-Call number 1850 372 999 and report the matter and the ESB will make the site safe.
