    Can we all agree the wind powered lights on North Mole are a failure? Most of the turbines don’t even spin in a 40 knot SW storm.

    I think you need to be careful with this one. The warmth of filament lights cannot be matched by awful LEDs producing a hospital like nasty harsh light. A stunning town like Fremantle should be careful not to save a few bucks on electricity by making the whole town have an awful hospital like lighting rather than the warm amber glow of a gorgeous fremantle old building/pub.
