Change street lights from inefficient technology to super-efficient 30 watt alternatives and raise awareness of energy efficiency with residents
City of Greater Dandenong
The City of Greater Dandenong received Australian Government funding to upgrade 5,320 inefficient streetlights with LEDs across the municipality in Victoria.
Need for project
The City of Greater Dandenong is a large regional council with low-socio-economic status. Each light changed represents a 77% reduction in electricity costs with savings to be redirected into the ratepayers and community via Councils other services like libraries, health services, support for social disadvantage and more.
Project deliverables and outcomes
Using Australian Government funding and a co-contribution by the City of Greater Dandenong, 5,320 inefficient streetlights were upgraded to LEDs. In addition to offering lower costs, lower energy consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions, the new lights provided better lighting outcomes for the community, including a greater uniformity of light across streets; better colour rendering and visibility; and less depreciation of the light output over time
