CONFIRMED: The lights are coming back on!

Created on 26/10/2012 @ 11:07


As reported earlier this week, the cabinet was asked to approve a £1.4 initiative to upgrade to LED lights which will save money for tax payers in the long run.
The upgrade is expected to take a year to complete.
Cabinet Member for Local and Environmental Services, Councillor Barry Thomas said: “The council has been using a number of methods including part-night lights, LED lights and turning off lamps to reduce the impact of energy cost increases and cut our carbon footprint.

“By investing £1.4 in the county’s infrastructure we will maintain costs within existing levels, restrict our carbon footprint and maintain reasonable standards of light within communities.

“We can’t give a precise figure for the number of lamps to be re-lit but on average for every conventional light we convert to a LED light an additional two lights currently switched off can be restored using LED lamps.

“As part of the process local communities will have an opportunity through their local council to comment on the location of streetlights they want to restore. The initiative should be complete by the end of November next year,” he added.
