Public Lighting

Charles Sturt, in conjunction with SA Power Networks (ETSA Utilities) continues to improve the street lighting across our city. We are responsible for all street lighting on local roads and contribute to lighting on the main road network.

Faulty lights are reported directly to SA Power Networks for repair by calling Faults & Emergencies 13 13 66 or report online at SA Power Networks Home Page. New lights are installed as a result of residents' input into current street lighting patterns and SA Power Networks designs.

SA Power Networks maintains and replaces all new underground developments or upgrades to existing road lighting systems where either overhead/underground mains exist. There are over 900 areas of open space within Charles Sturt and 120 of these areas have lighting and maintain them which include some Sports Grounds, Linear Park from Port Road to the coast & Henley Square and the Grange Precinct car parks.

Our current expenditure on electricity supply and maintenance is $1.4 million per year and a further $250,000 per year for minor & major street light improvements. As we are upgrading or have a new installation more efficient LED lighting is being used which improves our carbon footprint.
