Around 1,400 street lights are being replaced with more energy efficient and improved quality smart LED’s.

The lights that are currently being replaced are the mercury vapor lamps which were traditionally  more energy efficient than incandescent and most fluorescent lights, but not as effective as today’s LED’s.

The LED smart lights which cost $2.1 million dollars to replace, have been approved by Powercor, the distribution company that owns the lighting infrastructure.

The new ‘smart’ LED’s.

 

It is claimed that the project will save approximately $1.4 million over the life of the assets. 

The main body of the light lasts about 20 years, the photoelectric cells around 10 years and the poles around 35 years.
