LED lighting project
Wiltshire Council LED Street Lighting Project
We have made a £12m investment to convert our street lighting to LED lighting. The older types of lights were going out of production and the cost of energy is becoming prohibitive. The new lights are much more energy efficient and have a reduced carbon footprint.
The light from the LED units looks different as it is not orange in colour as some of the older lighting was. The new lights provide similar lighting levels with less light spill and are considerably cheaper to operate and maintain. Instead of being turned off for part of the night many of the lights are now dimmed during off peak periods to further reduce energy consumption.
Work started on the project in October 2019 and the majority of street lights have now been upgraded, with a few special and heritage units now being completed.
