Maribyrnong City Council opts for Leadsun’s SMART solar lighting in-line with their zero- carbon emissions energy program

Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong People of the Kulin Nation
As part of their zero-carbon emission energy program, The Maribyrnong City Council opted to go ‘off-the-grid’ and install a solar powered lighting system for the Angliss Reserve Car Park. The challenge was they needed it completed within 2 days and to have no disruption.
Fast and easy installation with little to no disruption
Not only did this project deliver a zero-carbon emission result for the Maribyrnong Council, bit it was also done in under 1 day with no disruption to the car park access or damage to the environment.
Leadsun’s solution was to use the easy to install ‘All-In-One’ Solar Engine with Plug & Play LED fixture coupled with the EZYpole lowerable poles & concrete-less footing’s allowing the project team to successfully install the entire solar lighting solution from ‘start-to-finish’ in just one day.
This was achieved because this project required:
- NO expensive underground trenching or wiring
- NO excavation of footing holes
- NO need for any machinery to lift poles or work at heights
Leadsun’s ultra-efficient LED lighting system provides continuous dusk to dawn operation and achieves compliance to lighting standards during peak activity times of the evening.

Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which this project was undertaken, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong People of the Kulin Nation. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We are not disturbing or contaminating, so it is a really good option for us. We have the EZYpole which is the winch pole without having to bring a Cherry Picker. Just by lowering the pole from the ground saved us a lot of money. It was a no-brainer to put these lights in here and the fact that was done in one day made it even better.
