12 CCTV solar lights were required by the new partnership between Energy Australia, Melbourne Cricket Ground and Yarra Park to increase security for pedestrians in Melbourne’s sporting and entertainment precinct.
These were required to operate 24 hours a day to enhance the safety of Yarra Park, between MCG gates two and three, after dark. Solar lighting solutions were chosen because they were estimated to save 1.3 tonnes of carbon per year, greatly reducing Yarra Park’s energy consumption.

“Improving safety in Yarra Park is very important to us and we’re pleased to work with Energy Australia on this energy-themed initiative to help deliver a safer environment for local residents, MCG fans and other park users. The lighting produced is 100 per cent sustainable. LED street lights are becoming increasingly popular because not only do they have a long life but they reduce carbon emissions.”
