54,980kg CO2 reduced annually


Cherry Energy Solutions worked in collaboration with the respective local council bodies in Fawkner, Lilydale and Altona to design and implement LED lighting upgrades across the various sites.


At the Fawkner site, the LED lighting upgrade covered the main office areas, maintenance sheds, changing rooms and underground car park.

A combination of Cherry LED T8 Tubes and LED Troffers were used to dramatically reduce the GMCT Fawkner site’s energy usage while improving the working environment.

The new LED lights will reduce lighting energy consumption by 64%!

GMCT Fawkner also received over $1,400 from Moreland City Council towards the cost of the lighting upgrade and are set to save more than $121,000 over the next 10 years!
