  • Council to Spend over £10 million on lights

    The Borough of Poole Council has approved plans to install energy-efficient LED street lighting across the town.

    17,420 lights will be replaced over the next 6 years estimated to cost £10 million.

    The council said that the new LED lights would improve street lighting, improve safety, reduce energy costs and reduce carbon consumption. The costs for street lighting in the area had more than doubled in the last 10 years with lighting using a quarter of the town's carbon usage.

  • Ayrshire expect to save millions with LEDs

    Last week, the North Ayrshire council approved plans to spend over £4 million on replacing lights with LEDs.

    With the UK's mandatory limit on carbon emissions (Carbon Reduction Commitment), the Ayrshire council felt the best way to meet the targets were to switch the current street lighting to LED lighting. This will consist of changing around 13,500 lights across North Ayrshire. The street lighting currently costs £870,000 a year and with the Carbon Reduction Commitment would rise to £940,000 a year.

  • 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."
