WSROC LED Installations

WSROC Case Study LED street lights have been installed in over 13 000 positions across the western Sydney region in one of the largest LED retrofit programs in Australia. 

The lights were installed by Endeavour Energy, a state-owned electricity infrastructure company that owns, maintains and operates the electrical distribution networks for greater Western Sydney and the Illawarra region of NSW, Australia. Endeavour Energy was responsible for both supply and installation of the new lights. Installation was uncomplicated with the exception of minor disruptions. From a technological point of view this is one of the most straightforward projects a council, funding organisation or distributor can implement. It is simply changing one type of light to another 13,951 times. 

Known as the Light Years Ahead project ,the project's objectives were to:

- Deliver energy efficiency improvements to Western Sydney councils? public street lighting which leads to carbon emission reduction and cost saving.

- Develop and implement educational and engagement tools and materials to ensure that key stakeholders and the Western Sydney community benefit and learn from the project activities during the project and beyond.

- Showcase the Western Sydney region as a frontrunner on energy efficiency.

-Set an example to our residents to change to low emission light bulbs.

- Advocate on behalf of our councils to ensure they have some control over their energy usage. 

From the onset, and as stated in the initial project plan, the Light Years Ahead project aimed to replace 12,770 inefficient street lights with more energy efficient models, achieving 66 per cent energy reduction. 

Due to improvements in technology and price negotiations by WSROC, an updated business case was developed, including latest available technology and data, lower capital costs and more energy efficient options.From then onwards, the project aimed for higher outcomes, replacing 13,000 lights and achieving a 77 per cent energy reduction. The lighting installation was supported by a communication and marketing program to promote and increase the community awareness and knowledge of energy efficiency.
