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.
