Barking and Dagenham Council, Kirklees Council, Stockport Council
Many Labour councils are moving to LED streetlights in a bid to save money on energy bills and become more energy efficient. Barking and Dagenham Council have replaced over 16,500 lights, saving £321,000, Kirklees Council has already changed 21,000 streetlights, with a view to changing all 52,000 streetlights in the borough in the next five years amounting to a 70% saving in energy costs, and Stockport Council plans to replace all 33,000 streetlights, making cost savings from reduced energy bills and maintenance costs of 40%.
