How to get power at commercial job


LawnSite Member
I tried doing a forum search but didn't see anyone discussing this:

I have a client with several commercial properties (buildings with parking lots) that would like to have some trees wrapped in lights out by the road next to their parking lot. The problem: there aren't any outlets out there.

There certainly is power out there as they have parking pole lights and a business sign. Is this a job for an electrician to wire in an outlet? Is that a thing that happens at jobs like these?

Anyone have experience/suggestions with this problem?

I wrapped palms along the parking area of a building last year. I had an electrion wire outlets on the base of the light poles. They were just seasonal lights so it worked fine.
