Press Release 28th July 2011

Independent TD for Kildare North Catherine Murphy today highlighted the new service launched by Airtricity in order to enable the public to report street light faults in a more direct and clear-cut fashion.


The Utility Solutions company launched the first Interactive Street Lighting Website in Ireland and this month encouraged those who notice faults with public street lighting to make use of this direct interface.

The major benefit here is that people can report faults as and when they see them regardless of the time or day.  Most particularly, given the advent of smart-phones and the wider availability of broadband generally people are becoming ever-more connected to the internet and it makes sense for companies such as Airtricity to utilise this, stated Murphy.


The new service is available at and can be accessed simply by clicking the “Report a Fault” button on the homepage.  You can both log and track the progress of the fault online.


What’s very useful about this particular service is that it puts an element of control back into the hands of the public in that they have a direct link to the fault reporting site and can track the fault until its resolution.  I’d encourage people to use this service as and when they come across faults and I’ll certainly be making use of it myself.

Airtricity Utility Solutions is Ireland’s largest street lighting contractor, employing almost 120 staff.  The company maintains over 300,000 street lights for over 900 customers across the Republic of Ireland and operate 9 regional depots.

Feedback on the system can be forwarded to or 01 467 3896.
