Streetlighting: The sustainable LED programme

In 2014 South Gloucestershire Council embarked on a programme to replace street lighting lanterns with LED. Unlike other councils South Gloucestershire opted for a 10 year sustainable replacement programme rather than replace all the lanterns in a short timescale.

Now over halfway through, the programme has surpassed business plan projections by utilising advances in technology to reduce annual capital spend by over £700k, increased the energy efficiency of the lanterns to reduce CO2 consumption and save £8.0m cumulative energy.
