The project is to update the existing lighting at HMHC to the international standard of 500 LUX. Project will use existing poles and wires and will benefit all users of the centre. In particular the TEM and Hawthorn Hockey Clubs who have approx 1200 members aged 7 to 75 of both genders in broadly similar numbers. This represents approx 10% of the registered hockey players in Melbourne. All users will benefit from upgraded lighting, particularly during winter when most training and many games are played in the evenings/nighttime. Currently the lighting is very uneven creating shadows which is undesirable.

The project will benefit the local community with:
-improved safety and vision for players, umpires and coaches
-improved viewing for spectators
-better directional focus of lights meaning reduced impact on neighbours
-LED lights are far more energy efficient than the current lights leading to reduced greenhouse emissions
-Hawthorn and TEM Premier League teams playing night games at home rather than 3rd party venues
-reduced ground hire costs for TEM and Hawthorn Hockey Clubs
-new lighting technology will reduce the maintenance and electricity costs associated with managing the hockey centre reducing the financial burden on Hawthorn and TEM hockey clubs.

The lights would be fantastic for the club especially as many of the competitions are at night and over winter.
