Vector Lights, on Auckland Harbour Bridge, is part of a smart energy partnership between Vector and Auckland Council in collaboration with the NZ Transport Agency.

Vector Lights demonstrates that there is a smarter way to power Auckland by using new energy technology to showcase Auckland as a dynamic world class city.

Vector Lights will celebrate international & local events, national holidays, cultural celebrations and not-for-profit causes, and a calendar of activity will be created accordingly.

On occasions there will be opportunities to light the bridge in addition to the scheduled calendar. The public are welcome to request lighting for a specific cause, event or occasion to be considered for these opportunities. Requests should be made in writing using this form. We aim to publicise the next year’s programming in December, so please submit requests for consideration by August 31. Vector and Auckland Council will consider all requests in their absolute discretion and contact you in writing to advise whether your request can be fulfilled.

As a general guideline, we may agree to activate Vector Lights for any of the following reasons:

  • For events, community initiatives or not for profit causes

  • To mark a special event, milestone or celebration

  • For a public holiday or recognised anniversary

Vector Lights is not affiliated with any specific political or religious movement. Vector Lights is a gift to people of all persuasions.
