THE $1.9 million conversion to more efficient LED streetlights across the Shire of Mundaring is set to begin this week.
Western Power will commence the first stage of the changeover this week in Wooroloo.
Shire President Paige McNeil said the conversion of shire streetlights to LED was a project that council committed to in 2022.
“The Shire of Mundaring is proud of its strong commitment to reducing energy costs and addressing climate challenges,” she said.
“Once completed, the more efficient lights will result in estimated savings of $350,000 per year in electricity costs.
“Importantly, it will also make a significant difference in achieving our targets for lower greenhouse gas emissions.”
Following the first stage of the changeover, works are scheduled to commence on Great Eastern Highway in January and Sawyers Valley and Mt Helena in March.
It is expected that all lights will be changed over to LED by June 2024 with the replacement of a total of 3279 street lights to be converted.
