the council should be able to cut its lighting bill by at least 57%
(PRWEB UK) 30 May 2013
It has been reported in This is Leicester that the three year scheme, run by Leicester City Council, began in February, during which time 1,000 lamps have now been refitted with LED technology. By February 2016, the project is expected to see 33,000 sodium lamps replaced. There are also plans to install a new central management system to enable the brightness of the lamps to be altered through the night to meet local requirements. Once all the replacements have been made, the council should be able to cut its lighting bill by at least 57%, whilst also reducing carbon emissions by over 5,300 tons per year.
It is estimated that the venture should pay for itself in just over 10 years. Councillor Lynn Moore explained that “that will help to save money and make people feel safer in their homes.”
