    by Communications,

    A Public Lighting Service Framework has been developed by SA Power Networks in consultation with the Public Lighting Working Group and Councils.

    The framework is intended to act as a high-level document outlining our commitment to working with public lighting customers to ensure we deliver services that they value.

    It outlines the levels of service SA Power Networks aims to deliver to public lighting customers and details the responsibilities of SA Power Networks and public lighting customers. You can read the full framework here.

  • New public lighting services in 2020-2025

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    We continue to innovate our public lighting service offerings while keeping overall costs down: average public lighting costs have reduced 38% since 1999/00.

    In 2015-2020 we developed new service offerings including long term contracts that provide a large degree of price certainty and helped to roll out new energy efficient street lights (LEDs).

    Through ongoing discussions and workshops held with our public lighting customers, we are developing new service offerings that we believe our customers wish to see over 2020-2025, including choices on:

    • service packages
    • asset responsibility and funding model;
    • asset technology and information;
    • price certainty; and
    • new/emerging public lighting services.
