Council, in partnership with CitiPower, has upgraded 3,200 existing 80W Mercury Vapour (MV) street lights to energy efficient lights. These street lights use less energy and require less maintenance, leading to lower operating costs and reduced greenhouse emissions.
Street lights are currently Council's biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions and this upgrade helps us avoid over 22,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas over the next 20 years. This will reduce our net greenhouse gas emissions by around 10 per cent.
See these FAQ for more information on the street lighting upgrade (PDF, 79 KB).
If you think that the lighting in a specific location is insufficient, contact us either using our Online Services or by calling ASSIST on (03) 9209 6777.
