Auckland Transport – Street Light Energy Savings

Upgrading streetlights reduces energy consumption and costs


Auckland Transport is responsible for providing street lighting in the greater Auckland area. Its street lighting energy-saving initiative, which it committed to in 2014, has seen more than 108,000 of the city’s streetlights converted from high intensity discharge to light emitting diode.

The move both improves safety and reduces energy consumption and costs. To date the project has produced annual energy savings of more than 39 GWh and cost savings in excess of $12 million a year.
