New LED lights being fitted across Liverpool

Between February and October 2018, 15,000 new LED 'white light' energy saving bulbs will be fitted in street lights across the city as Phase Two of a major £7m upgrade.

Phase One of the programme was completed in 2017 and saw 12,000 lights changed in 1,800 streets, reducing carbon emissions by 1,500 tonnes and saving the city more than half a million pounds.

Phase Two will cut the council’s energy bill by a further £260,000 a year, reduce carbon emissions by about 1,300 tonnes (saving £21,000) and reduce our street light maintenance bill by approximately £47,000 a year.

In total, maintenance costs will also reduce by £2.7m over the next five years, once all the street lights have been converted.

This work is being carried out in partnership SSE Enterprise.
