The City of Marion is replacing all of its 8525 street lights with LED energy-efficient globes to cut electricity costs and reduce emissions.
The initiative is expected to cut energy use by 75 per cent, saving ratepayers about $10 million over the project’s 20-year span.
Carbon emissions will be reduced by more than 1600 tonnes a year.
Switching to LED lighting will save ratepayers’ money, help protect the environment and improve visibility on roads and footpaths.
The installation is expected to be completed by 2021.
