LED Upgrade

The recent LED tender undertaken by Essential Energy provided a range of LED luminaries to replace an estimated 98% of existing non-LED technology streetlights.

A significant benefit from the tender process was the improvement in quality of product and reduction in energy consumption that has further improved the value of LED compared to older technology.

The total life cycle operating cost of LED luminaries is significantly lower than retaining the existing technology when considering both maintenance and energy savings. Further, LED’s provide more uniform and reliable lighting creating safer public spaces for the community, and reduced greenhouse emissions into the environment.

This has generated an accelerated uptake from Councils to convert to LED technology, Essential Energy plans to undertake this upgrade to new technology within this regulatory period 2019 - 2024.

As the LED upgrade rolls out across our network we'll be keeping the community informed here on Essential Engagement and through joint media releases with each council.
