Street Lighting

Tea Tree Gully Council is continuing its partnership with SA Power Networks and subsidiary company Enerven, to upgrade residential street lights to LED – improving energy efficiency and road visibility. 

When completed, this project will reduce carbon emissions by approximately 480t of greenhouse gas annually, equivalent to removing 100 cars off the road each year.

The forecast financial savings from electricity and tariffs will be up to $500,000 per year.

Stage one was completed in 2022 with over 1,000 street lights converted to LED in Dernancourt, Holden Hill, Gilles Plains, Modbury and Ridgehaven.

Stage two of this project will commence in April 2023 with up to 3,000 LED street lights planned to be installed, with the investment for this project being $1.2 million.

Switching to LED lighting will significantly decrease Council’s street light energy and maintenance costs, help protect the environment and improve visibility on roads and footpaths.

The new lights are more energy efficient, require less maintenance and generate a warm-to-white light (around 3000 Kelvin). LED street lights spread light more evenly along and across footpaths and roads to improve visibility.

Street lighting is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions by local governments in Australia.
