Proactive upgrade to a 42 W CFL
Western Power's streetlight range now includes the 42 W Compact Fluorescent Luminaires (42 W CFL).
Under its maintenance programs, Western Power will change existing 80W Mercury Vapour luminaires to 42 W CFL when luminaires (streetlight heads) are found to have failed and cannot be repaired.
In addition, Local Governments can pay to upgrade working streetlights to 42 W CFL.
