  • Angus cuts electricity costs for street lighting by a third

Angus council in Scotland has cut its spending on electricity for street lighting from £1,266,000 million to a shade over £830,000.

The Dundee-based Courier newspaper quotes a council report saying:

The roads business unit have undertaken significant street lighting infrastructure improvement works recently, which have resulted in the replacement of inefficient lamps with new energy-efficient units, which results in significantly reduced energy consumption.

They have also negotiated a new electricity contract at a lower price.

This report provides a footnote to yesterday’s post about the “rebound effect” on savings from energy efficient lighting.
