£270m to be spent on street lights
4:00pm Friday 27th June 2014 in News
A FIVE-year programme to replace 55,000 street lights will cut carbon emissions by a quarter.
West Sussex County Council’s £270 million, 25-year contract with Scottish and Southern Energy will see 80% of the local authority’s lights be replaced by next year.
The council is working in partnership with energy firm SSE to replace all street lights over 15-years-old with “brighter, energy-saving” lights.
West Sussex County Council have said the new lights in residential areas use a whiter light which gives better colour identification and are cheaper to maintain.
