LED street lighting roll-out ‘to save Edinburgh £77m over 20 years’

Councillors have accepted strategies to update street lights throughout Edinburgh conserving the city an approximated ₤ 77m over the next Twenty Years.

The step follows a task to change 7000 outdated lights with LED lights in 2016, intending to decrease the expense of energy intake for the city’s street lights, which remained in the area of ₤ 2.97 m annually.

Members of the transportation and environment committee concurred propositions to transform 54,000 street lights to energy-efficient LED (Light Discharging Diodes) on Tuesday.

With energy rates anticipated to double within the next 10 years, making use of LEDs will permit the council to lower electrical power use while reducing the anticipated increase in carbon expenses.
