Eight new LED streetlights have been installed in Henry and Hughes Streets, with Edward River Council calling for feedback from local residents.

Part of its 2020/21 Operational Plan, Council has partnered with Essential Energy to replace all streetlights throughout Deniliquin and the rural villages with more efficient LED streetlighting.

“LED streetlighting will reduce Council’s annual costs and energy usage relating to streetlighting as well as reducing Council’s emissions,” general manager Phil Stone said.

“We are inviting residents in the trial areas to provide feedback regarding the new lights by 18 September by calling Council on 58983000, emailing us at council@edwardriver.nsw.gov.au or contacting us via our website.”

Essential Energy has installed eight LED streetlights as part of a trial in the following areas:

Henry Street, between Crispe Street and Dick Street, and;

Hughes Street, between Hetherington Street and Harfleur Street.

“Feedback from local residents will help Council finalise the LED Streetlight Replacement Program for all of Deniliquin and the rural areas so we would very much like to hear from the residents in Henry and Hughes streets,” Mr. Stone said.
