LEDs to light the way in the Eurobodalla

Essential Energys Sam Peake and Councils Mark Shorter with one of the new LED street lights to be installed

The Eurobodalla is set to have improved lighting following an upgrade of its street lights.

Eurobodalla Shire Council is working on improving energy efficiency across its street light network with crew starting to roll out new energy efficient LED street lights which will save ratepayers more than $150,000 a year in reduced energy and maintenance costs.

Around 2,500 street light bulbs will be replaced with the LEDs on the Shire’s residential roads, with Council working with Essential Energy to carry out the work.

Council say LEDs are more energy efficient and can use up to 80 per cent less power than the old lights, along with lasting up to 20 years.

The LEDs also provide a whiter and clearer light, which can improve road safety and reduce accidents, as well as improve public safety and reduce crime levels.
