Covering 41 Local Government Areas, the Southern Lights' project is evidence of the capacity for local government to collaborate for innovation.
Southern Lights NSW is an enabling infrastructure project designed to deliver better, safer, cheaper lighting and smarter, connected communities. The project will provide significant connectivity benefits to regional and rural communities across southern NSW from Bega to Broken Hill.
The Southern Lights Group has finalised its Business Case for the deployment of over 75,000 smart-enabled street lights across Southern NSW. The Business Case was given to the NSW State Government on October 10, 2018 along with a spreadsheet detailing the costs associated with each of 75,000 lights covered by the project.
