South Kesteven District council in £100,000 switch to LED street lights
A long-awaited move to using energy efficient street lights is set for a boost from South Kesteven District Council.
The council's cabinet on Tuesday is recommended to approve a plan to set aside £100,000 from its invest to save fund to speed up a programme of converting council street lights to LED replacements.
SKDC currently operates 3593 General Fund street lights, which cost £121,000 a year to run in energy costs, plus a further £50,000 a year in maintenance and £30,000 a year to cover vandalism.
