Using LED streetlights to save energy and money


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%.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
