The provision of street lighting is an important element in any community. In this regard Council works closely with energy provider, Endeavour Energy (formerly Integral Energy). Each month Council pays a bill in excess of $120,000 for the provision of street lighting. Of this about $30,000 is the actual electricity bill. As there are no meters on the street lights Council is charged a flat rate.
In the interests of safety it is very important that all residents keep an eye out for and report street lights that are not working. If you notice that a street light has been damaged or needs a new bulb there are two ways you can have the situation fixed.
Endeavour Energy has a comprehensive website which has an online form specifically for reporting street lights that are out. All you need to do is complete the details on the form and submit it. A return notice will be sent to you acknowledging your request. Alternatively, you can phone Endeavour Energy on 131 003 to report a damaged street light or fax 02 9831 9089.
