Upgrading street lighting to LED units

The lighting in Rotherham is not efficient by today's standards. To reduce energy costs, the Council will replace around 13,000 lighting units. This is a far better alternative to switching lighting off.

The street lighting in Rotherham is being changed to LED lighting units.

The new lighting reduces;

  • energy consumption
  • maintenance costs
  • carbon emissions

The LED lighting meets British Standard guidance for levels and uniformity of light.

The Council has a responsibility to light highways only. Lighting on non-highway areas, such as drives, are the responsibility of individual residents.

We have a schedule of work to replace lighting in residential areas.
