Frankston City Council will begin upgrading 7000 fluorescent streetlights with energy-efficient LEDs next month in a move that will both reduce its carbon footprint and save it more than $2.6 million.

Frankston City Mayor Sandra Mayer said the project was a key action towards reducing the council’s greenhouse gas emissions in line with its Towards Zero Emissions Plan (2019-2023). “Council declared a climate emergency late last year and this project will reduce emissions by as much as removing 110 cars from the road each year,” Cr Mayer said. “I am really proud we are taking this step in significantly reducing our carbon footprint as we progress towards our target of zero net emissions by 2025.” 

The LEDs are up to 53 per cent more efficient than the lights they are replacing, and the project is expected to save the council more than $2.6 million over the life of the light fittings. “This will allow us to direct more resources into other community services, providing more value for money for ratepayers,” Cr Mayer said.

The LEDs will also provide greater uniformity of light across and along the street; better colour and visibility; less loss of brightness over time; less glare; greater reliability; and lower maintenance costs. The new lights also have a longer life and are expected to last up to 20 years. The old lights will be deconstructed and recycled.

Cr Mayer said residents would be able to visit the council’s website and see when installation was expected in their suburbs. “The changeover may be impacted by weather and other factors but at this stage the project should be completed in June 2021. It will take less than five minutes to replace a streetlight so any disruptions, including to traffic flow, should not last long and residents’ and visitors’ cars can remain parked on the streets.”
