Street Lighting – Glasgow City Council
Posted on 26th June, 2017
Glasgow signed the first deal of its kind in the UK with the Green Investment Bank to replace 10,000 street lights.
Work is being undertaken right now to replace 10,000 lanterns with energy efficient LED lights. They’ll provide a 53% saving on current energy usage and help to deliver a further 3% savings on the Council’s carbon emissions. The Council has also delivered a pilot project with SSE to replace 1,000 lighting columns and lamps to test out new technologies and new funding models – another example of the innovative approach to public-private initiatives from this Council.
