The City of Victor Harbor will be one of the first regional councils in South Australia to change all residential street lights to Light Emitting Dioide (LED).

The will represent the single greatest electricity reduction project in the Council’s history. The transition to LED street lights will save the Council an estimated $2.8 million over the life of the new lights, at the same time as reducing greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 3,200 tonne.

Street lighting is necessary but very expensive for councils to run. It is also the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. The City of Victor Harbor has around 1,500 street lights.
