Streetlighting Program

Public lighting plays an important role in providing safe, secure and attractive public areas for both pedestrians and vehicles and Essential Energy is responsible for ensuring the maintenance and billing of around 160,000 streetlights for 86 Councils across NSW and southern Queensland.

Essential Energy is keen to work with councils to improve streetlighting service delivery - minimising costs and carbon emissions and facilitating uptake of ‘smart’ technologies.

This page provides an avenue for:

  • Essential Energy to prompt and promote an open dialogue regarding street lighting;
  • Disseminate information regarding Essential Energy street lighting initiatives; and
  • Strategically plan for future improvement programs
