Sportsfield floodlight upgrades completed in Shoalhaven

Sportsfield floodlight upgrades completed in Shoalhaven
May 26, 2020

Shoalhaven City Council has recently completed floodlight works on 17 sportsgrounds across the region, with the project including an upgrade of the switching controls to allow floodlight operation via a phone-based system.

The floodlight controller works totalled $192,200, funded by a NSW State Government grant of $122,203 with Council co-contributing $69,997 towards the project.

Mayor Amanda Findley was impressed with the new floodlight controller installations, bringing to a total of 30 Shoalhaven sporting complexes now using the controllers.

Mayor Findley notes “the phone-based control system allows users to operate the floodlights by sending a text message to the floodlight controller, offering a safer way for sportsground users to access the floodlights.

“The new system will also allow Council to monitor usage data which will assist in the planning of future sportsfield requirements, ensuring facility and service-based decisions are made utilising real, relevant Shoalhaven-based data.”
