Upgrade your lighting to more energy efficient LEDs

We offer funding to help local councils in NSW save energy and money by upgrading to energy efficient LED lighting.

Councils can access up to $12.5 million in funding to upgrade street lighting to LED. This includes high energy-use mercury vapour lights that are owned and/or maintained by NSW electricity distributors.

Other financial incentives can be accessed through the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) when upgrading street lighting to LEDs.


New LED street lighting means:

  • lower energy use
  • cheaper bills
  • reduced maintenance
  • reduced carbon emissions
  • increased community safety through brighter and higher quality lights
  • smarter control systems to help capture data and provide insights on lighting performance.
