LED Street Lights Trial

The LED Street Lights Trial is a joint initiative of Brisbane City Council and Energex, and will help determine which types of LED are most suitable for street lighting. Moving to LED street lights will help make our city more energy efficient by reducing street light energy consumption by up to 60 percent.

The trial will go for up to two years and test 10 different types of LEDs across 17 streets. LEDs installed throughout the trial will be monitored by Council employees and Energex representatives on a quarterly basis and residents will be asked to provide feedback at different stages of the trial to help with the LED evaluations.
