LED Street Lighting in Bradley Stoke
South Gloucestershire Council is introducing LED (Light Emitting Diode) street light technology to help reduce energy costs and cut carbon emissions.
Charfield was the first area to have LED lights installed in January 2014 and over the next decade they will be gradually replacing all of the 29,500 street lights with LED units. Priority areas will be units that consume the most energy. In 2014/5 they completed most of our main roads.
LEDs have many benefits:
- They consume 60% less energy than older units
- They last four times as long as older units and are cheaper and easier to maintain
- They are easier to control, allowing us to dim output at selected times for maximum energy efficiency
- They reduce light pollution because their beam is focused more effectively on the roads and footpaths and not private land
Work will be commencing in Bradley Stoke in December 2015 and will take approximately 6 months to complete.
