1,162 street lights across the Lane Cove area have now
been upgraded to new LED lights. Funded by Council’s Sustainability Levy with
works conducted by Ausgrid, the new lights require less maintenance and are
more cost-effective. While it took up to 95 watts to power the old
streetlights, the new LED lights use just 17 watts and are expected to last up
to 20 years.
During the 2020/21 financial year, it is expected Lane
Cove will save 192,681 kilowatts of electricity use, which is enough to power
10,140 average Australian homes for a day!
