Tourism and Economic Committee representative Councillor Bob Whalley said council has actively sought to improve safety in town areas through increased solar lighting.

“The solar installation at Lowood Recreational Complex is another great example of this practical, cost-effective and environmentally friendly innovation,” Cr Whalley said.

“The project was also a win for local business, with council engaging local contractors, A&M Civil Contracting, to complete the project, which was fully funded by council.”

Somerset Regional Council power streetlights at a cost of approximately $289,000 annually.
