Energy Efficiency Street Light Project

Changing the globe one street at a time

Maroondah City Council has started phase 1 of a street light bulk change project that will save money and reduce energy use. As part of phase 1 approximately 1,860 high-performance and energy efficient LED street lights will be installed across the municipality.

The new lights perform better, last longer and are more than twice as efficient as the existing 80-watt mercury vapour lights.

This project is expected to significantly reduce Council street lighting greenhouse emissions and costs. These cost savings will be reinvested into future change over phases.

The project will reduce Council’s street lighting greenhouse gas emissions by around 733 tonnes per year. This is equivalent to removing 170 cars from the road each year for the next 20 years.
