(PRWEB UK) 31 October 2013
It has been reported by the BBC on October 28 in the article titled ‘LED Lights Scheme for Hull City Centre’ that a new scheme has been introduced which will lead to over 2000 LED streetlights being installed in Hull’s city centre. The council has borrowed money for the scheme, which is reportedly costing a total of £1.2 million, yet they expect to be in a position to repay the costs within six years.
LED bulbs are renowned for their energy efficiency, helping homes and business to save money on their electricity bills. With Hull City Council currently spending approximately £1 million on electricity each year, the council expect to save around £96,000 on their energy bills over the lifespan of the bulbs.
As experts in LED lighting, the lighting specialists at LED Strip Lights Co. understand the benefits of installing these lights in the home and business, as well as on city streets. Regularly following industry news, the company were interested in the announcement of the scheme to install LED street lights in Hull. A representative for the company shared their thoughts on the initiative and spoke of the benefits of LED bulbs:
“It is welcome news that Hull City Council has launched a scheme to install LED street lights. There have been a number of recent reports of similar schemes around the world and it is welcome news to see that a number of locations will begin to benefit from energy efficient LED lights.
"The energy efficiency of these bulbs means that councils can save money on their energy bills, while the durability of these bulbs ensures that they have a significantly longer lifespan than traditional street lights. We look forward to hearing of more cities who have chosen to install LED street lights.”
