Goulburn St Car Park upgrades to LED lighting


Sydney’s Goulburn Street Car Park has converted its
850 fluorescent lights to light emitting diodes (LEDs). The lighting upgrade is
forecast to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 220 tonnes per year and save 206
mWh of electricity per year (the equivalent energy used by 28 typical Sydney
households annually) equivalent to approximately $26,000 pa.

A trial of the LED lighting was conducted in the car park in February 2010, proving that light levels exceeded the Australian
Standard for car park lighting and resulted in a 62% reduction in electricity.
During the trial, savings increased a further 6% with the introduction of a daylight
switching feature, whereby the LED lights around the perimeter of the car park
switch off after sensing sufficient natural lighting.

A great green step for the Goulburn Street car park
and for the City of Sydney in their effort to save on car park operating costs.
