An energy-efficient street light in Teddington

The Teddington Society welcomes Richmond Council’s decision to replace 7,000 street lights across the borough with more energy-efficient LEDs, starting immediately.

The Council hopes to make financial savings, while also saving 1,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The new LED street lights will be monitored by the Council’s computer management software and will have much lower running costs, using up to 60% per cent less energy than a conventional sodium street light. They will also have an average design life of 25 years, compared with about six years for traditional bulbs.

“Many of our street lights are nearing the end of their life and will need replacing so it makes good sense to replace them with the latest technology” said Cllr Alexander Ehmann, Chair of the Transport and Air Quality Committee “We’ve already replaced around 4,000 street lamps with the new energy-efficient bulbs so I’m delighted we’re now in a position to roll this out to every area of the borough.”
