Australia Hits Half A Million Energy Efficient Street Lights! Number 500,000 Installed in Campbelltown, South Australia

Tuesday 11th September 2018 marks a special moment for councils around Australia with the 500,000th energy efficient street light installed. Light number 500,000 was installed in the City of Campbelltown in the north-east suburbs of Adelaide, which is fitting given the pace of change and number of LEDs now being installed throughout South Australia. The half-a-million light milestone comes just over four years since the first LED bulk changeover in Australia in the City of Warrnambool on the Victorian south-west coast. Congratulations to Campbelltown and SA Power Networks for hitting this major milestone

Are You Ready for the Smart Lighting Revolution? Special Council Webinar now online!

There is always big news in the street lighting world. Some of it requires thought and planning. Some of it will impact how you do your job. We've packaged a host of  valuable information for you... Australian Local Government Smart Lighting Pilots; Stranded Assets; the Minimata Convention; Regulation Changes and more. Take a look at our council webinar to hear the latest on smart street lighting direct from Australia's experts and what it means for you and your council. 

Big South Australian Smart Lighting Program Update and Webinar.

Well it’s been a big, big, big few months in South Australian street lighting. We’ve had a few LED projects start and some of the larger ones like Onkaparinga wrap-up (ahead of time!). In the last few weeks alone the Cities of Unley and Campbelltown have both resolved to changeover to LEDs through the PLC tariff and the LGA have announced that they are no longer progressing on their bid to establish a public lighting company to own, operate and manage street lighting. So what next? Watch our special South Australian Smart Lighting Program Webinar where we’ll take you through everything you need to know to get up to speed and plan your projects.

Stop press: As of early August 2018 the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has also confirmed that public lighting services in SA will now be regulated and classified as Alternative Control Services (ACS).
