As part of Ipswich City Council’s commitment to lead the transition towards a Sustainable Ipswich, Ipswich City Council proposed the trial project of transitioning approximately 2,500 existing mercury vapour and fluoro bulb street lights to LED technology. Benefits of the upgrade include lower energy consumption, increased energy efficiency, reduced maintenance costs and lower carbon dioxide and mercury emissions.

Pensar Utilities were awarded the contract to supply, install and provide product warranty.
