Street lighting is a vital community asset that helps our community feel safer and more secure. Ausgrid maintains 250,000 streetlights within our network area on behalf of local councils across Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter.
If you’d like to report an issue with glare or the amount of lighting in your street please contact your local council. It's the Council’s responsibility to investigate any complaints about glare issues against the impacts that a modification to the lighting installation has on lighting level and safety of the public. If substantiated, the Council may contact Ausgrid with a request for glare treatment works.
Ausgrid is introducing energy efficient streetlights as a standard for all our streetlights. We have offered the 33 councils within our network the option to accelerate the replacement of 100,000 older residential streetlights with LEDs between November 2018 and June 2020. Find out more...
Ausgrid adheres to a large number of codes, standards and guidelines in the design, installation, operation and maintenance of our public lighting network including, but not limited to, the documents listed below.
