Street lighting - Big Plans, Bright Future

street lighting page

A three year programme has recently been completed which saw the Council invest around £14million on new street lighting.  This will help to make savings of approximately £1.8million per year from reduced energy and maintenance costs.

The savings will come from reduced energy and maintenance costs associated with more efficient and reliable Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and the money saved can then be invested in other services.

 

Facts and Figures

  • Savings of approximately £1.8million per year
  • Almost 28,000 lanterns replaced with modern LED lighting units
  • Around 8,500 street lighting columns over 25-years-old replaced
  • Some columns were over 80-years-old!
  • LED lights have a longer lifespan and are less prone to failure so they don’t need to be replaced as often, which makes them far more environment friendly
  • LED lights are fully recyclable and contain no toxic materials
  • LED lights generate a better quality of light while using a great deal less energy than the current lantern bulbs
