Woree Energy Efficient Street Lighting Trial

IN 2010 Member for Cairns, Desley Boyle, and Cairns City Councillor Rob Pyne met on site at Woree Industrial Park with Ergon representatives to learn more about the trial of more efficient street light products.

The trial – being conducted by Ergon Energy in a joint initiative with the Queensland Government, Office of Clean Energy and Energex at a cost of around $700,000 – follows the implementation of other energy efficiency trials for pool pumps and air conditioners in the city last year.
