We have upgraded street lights throughout the municipality to reduce energy use and associated costs. We have replaced approximately 12,000 mercury vapour lights with energy efficient LED street lights.
About the project
- This is Council's largest environmental sustainability project and reduces the associated street lighting energy use by 77% each year.
- It also reduces our street lighting greenhouse gas emissions by around 75,100 tonnes over the 20-year life of the lights.
- We currently spend $4.6 million on street lighting and anticipate that the project will save around $700,000 annually in street lighting costs.
- The City of Casey has contributed $4.5 million towards the street lighting replacement program and received funding of $1.3 million from the Australian Government.
