Streetlight Outages

Council owns and maintains streetlights along roads managed by Horowhenua District Council.

There are nearly 2,700 streetlights – they are energy-efficient LEDs and have a 20-year expected lifespan.

The LED lights on heavy-use streets are a higher wattage than those in residential areas.
