Decorative lighting upgrade options

In order to improve the reliability of street lighting and reduce energy costs to Council, we are planning to upgrade street lights with energy efficient LED’s in Flagstaff Hill.

A compliance analysis performed independently by expert lighting company Ironbank has indicated that the decorative style of street lighting on your street is inefficient as the light distribution can be obtrusive. The luminaires are also old and nearing their end of life.

An option for replacing existing “decorative” style light using a “standard” LED Street light and cross arm (pictured) has been approved for use by SA Power Networks.

We believe the standard street light has greater benefit over the decorative style of lights in achieving:


  • Higher reduction in energy consumption and associated costs
  • Reduction in capital cost
  • Reduction in tariff costs
  • Greater uniformity of light across and along the street
  • Better colour rendering and visibility
  • Less reduction of the light output over time
  • Reduced glare and light spill into private property.

Do you have any questions?

Over the next six months we are seeking to transition decorative street lights to a standard style of street light. We're happy to answer any questions you may have about the transition - just leave your question below and we'll endeavor to answer within 48 hours.
