Trans Tasman Energy Group works with councils, transport authorities and government bodies Australia wide to reduce their public lighting spend.


We specialise in negotiating with monopoly electricity distribution suppliers such as Powercor, SP AusNet, Ergon, Essential Energy, ETSA and CitiPower to obtain the most competitive prices for street lighting.


We have a strong track record of designing public lighting solutions to meet clients’ needs, and can create a customised solution to reduce your public lighting costs.
