After three years of planning, six councils in Northern Tasmania will be embarking on the largest energy efficiency project of its kind in the State.
A collaboration between Local Government and TasNetworks, Northern Lights will see approximately 9,100 LED street lights installed across six municipal areas.
The six partner councils have been working to prepare for the project since 2014. During that time councils have successfully navigated technological change, contract negotiation and funding approvals for the multi-million dollar project. Comprehensive project management and communications planning have preceded the official launch event being held on 24 January.
An outstanding example of what can be achieved by working together, the six partner councils, representatives from the Local Government Association of Tasmania and TasNetworks will be in attendance at the launch.
