Green lights saves Council
Tweed Shire Council claims it will save $270,000 a year from changing the globes on almost 4000 streetlights.
Sustainabiity officer Dan Walton says globes have been replaced with more energy-efficient models at a cost of $293,000 – an investment which would be recouped in a little over 12 months.
“It means a far smaller running cost so our electricity bill will be about $270,000 a year for operating the streetlights and about a 1000 tonne reduction in CO2 emissions,” Walton said.
“It’s cost council $293,000 so that’s as a return on investment that’s a little over 12 months before we are back in the black.”
