  • Debate over change in lights

    After the City of Lethbridge changed their streetlights to energy efficient LEDs, a lot of residents didn't agree with the change. Some residents have complained that the lights are too bright and can disrupt sleep whereas other residents prefer the lights because of the increased visibility as well as 'keeping thieves at bay'.

    One of the residents who complained, Ken Kellett, said: "Basically the streets are lit up like a stadium. We've ultimately put in tinted windows."

    Lethbridge City spokesman, Darwin Juell, said: "People were complaining adamantly that it was brighter and they could read out of their bedroom window at night, but when we measured, it was actually dimmer or the same level as it was with the old HPS light. Change is hard for anybody."

    With new LED technology light pollution is a thing of the past as new LEDs can be controlled of how much light they emit. Take a look at our dimmable LEDs.

  • Gloucestershire Could Save Millions with LEDs

    Gloucestershire Council is expected to make millions through LED street lighting.

    A discussion has begun on whether the council should convert to LED streetlights. The council may be bringing into action a 12 year, £32 million contract which covers LED lighting and maintenance.

    Investment in LED lighting was approved as part of the Council Budget for 2014/15 through to 2017/18 in February. LEDs use less than half the energy of the original sodium lights.

    By switching to LED streetlights the council hopes to save about £17 million over the next 25 years.

    This will also help the council meet it's carbon reduction target because of the low energy.

    Cabinet member for Highways and Flood, Councillor Vernon Smith, said: "LED lighting is a modern, energy efficient system with many benefits. It will mean we are using less energy and reducing our impact on the environment as well as saving money long term."

  • Airports, Hospitals and Supermarkets going LED

    Households could be paying for LED lighting in supermarkets, airports and hospitals.

    This is part of an attempt by the energy department to reduce the UK's power usage. The energy secretary, Ed Davey, announced that £20m of taxpayer money will be used for a trial scheme where businesses are offered funding to carry out 'energy efficiency improvements'. This includes things like changing an average bulb for an LED.

    Businesses will take part in a 'reverse auction' where they will bid for either the entire cost covered or just part of it. More than over 300 businesses have expressed an interest in the scheme.
