Going green and cutting costs with LED streetlights

   Councils  

Barking and Dagenham Council

Over 16,500 street lights in Barking & Dagenham have been replaced with energy efficient LED lighting, saving the council up to £321k in electricity costs. While other local authorities have been switching the lights off to save money, Barking & Dagenham Council secured a £7.4m loan from the Green Investment Bank to get the scheme off the ground. The new LED street lights will cut the council’s carbon emissions and represent a great deal for local taxpayers.
