EnergyAustralia requests Quotations for LED street-lighting trial

Energy services corporation EnergyAustralia is seeking quotations for a small number of LED luminaires in order to conduct a trial of LED street lights in New South Wales, Australia.

EnergyAustralia invites Quotations for the supply of a small number of LED luminaires for Australian Standard Category P4 and P5 road lighting. This Quotation relates only to the purchase of the luminaires. EnergyAustralia will install and conduct the street-lighting trial in-house.

Quotations close on Tuesday 21 December 2010.

EnergyAustralia is Australia’s largest energy services corporation, delivering safe and reliable electricity supply to over 1.3 million customers. It is a State Owned Corporation operating under distribution and retail licenses in New South Wales (NSW).

EnergyAustralia maintains a population of about 250,000 street lights on behalf of 41 Local Councils in the Sydney, Central Coast and Hunter regions of NSW. A total of 160,000 street lights fall under the P4 and P5 lighting category.

Respondents should be aware that there are marked differences in the Australian road lighting standards for residential roads (AS/NZS 1158.3.1) as compared to lighting standards in other countries. In particular, minimum maintained lighting levels on residential roads are as little as one-fifth that of some international standards. Luminaire spacing are much larger than typical in other parts of the world.

Respondents should also be aware that there is considerable interest in LED road lighting technology in Australia from both a large number of local governments and the fourteen other Australian electricity-distribution companies who collectively manage close to two million street lights.
