Council wants to hear from you
The Towong Shire Council is
upgrading more than 300 street
lights across the municipality to
energy efficient LED lighting as
part of the Watts Working Better

to produce significant savings
for council through reduced
electricity and maintenance costs.”
said Towong mayor, Cr David
“Street lighting represents the
single largest source of greenhouse
gas emissions and a large portion of
utility costs for most councils,” he
“The new lights will consume
up to 77 per cent less power than
those currently in place, reducing
greenhouse gas emission by more
than 106,700 tonnes over the next
They are also much brighter than
traditional lights resulting in better
safety for motorists and pedestrians.
Cr Wortmann said there is
unlikely to be any inconvenience to
residents or businesses throughout
the upgrade process.
“No disruption to electricity
supplies will occur as a result of the
installation,” he said.
Better street lighting is on the way
