Christine Watson of Marquette Turner Luxury Homes writes:

The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, MP said public lighting accounted for about a third of the city’s electricity use and was a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

As part of a trial with Energy Australia, the City of Sydney are installing two hundred and fifty sustainable street lights across the Sydney CBD and city villages. A range of 200 LED lighting products at four locations – Martin Place, Circular Quay, Darlinghurst Road and Alexandria Park and 50 Cosmopolis street lights in Bourke Street, Surry Hills are being installed as part of the first trial.

The trial could potentially reduce energy consumption by 50%, saving millions of dollars in electricity and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Ms Moore said “much of the technology is so new it has yet to be trialed and tested on mass in an urban environment, which is why we are using multiple technologies in four separate areas to measure effectiveness and energy savings”.
