Regulated Streetlight (Z) tariffs

Compact fluorescent (CFL)

42W CFL streetlight technology has a key focus on energy efficiency and helping to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

These lights have been found to be reliable and technically compatible for wide-spread installation, as an energy efficient replacement for the 80W Mercury vapour (MV).

Fluorescent

A fluorescent lamp uses mercury-vapour gas, at low pressure, in a glass tube to produce visible light. Fluorescent lamps will produce a white light and are more energy efficient compared to many other lighting technologies.

High-pressure sodium (HPS)

 A high-intensity discharge lamp, which uses sodium vapour, in a high-pressure arc tube, as the primary light-producing element. HPS lamps produce a golden yellow light and the typical useful life of the lamp is 14,000 hours. With an efficacy of 100 lumens per watt, the HPS lamp is a cost effective light source.

Light emitting diode (LED)

LED lamps are our most affordable and energy efficient options that produce brighter light than traditional street and park lighting. They use a semiconducter diode that emits light when conducting current.

Mercury vapour (MV)

Mercury high-intensity discharge lamps use mercury as the primary light-producing element. Although this lamp produces a white light, its colour rendering ability is minimal. The typical average useful life of the lamp is 12,000 hours (similar to that of a HPS lamp). The efficacy of the mercury vapour lamp is 55 lumens per watt.

For streetlights on Mercury vapour 50% E.C. and 100% E.C Western Power covers 50% or 100% (respectively) of the capital costs of installing streetlights.

Metal halide (MH)

A high-intensity discharge lamp, which uses mercury and halide additives as light producing elements.

Metal halide lamps provide excellent colour rendering, producing a crisp, blue/white tone light. With a typical useful life of 8,000 hours (approximately half that of HPS or MV lamps), the running costs can be higher than other lamp alternatives. Metal halide lamps have an efficacy of 80 lumens per watt.

Incandescent

Incandescent bulbs produce light with a filament wire which is heated to a high temperature until it glows brightly.

Incandescent bulbs are an old technology and less energy efficient than most other types of electric lighting, converting less than 5% of the energy they use into light. They also have a shorter useful life compared to other types of lamps.
