Plans for longer street lighting hours in Hertfordshire

Most of Hertfordshire’s streetlights are switched off between 1am and 5am, when traffic is very low, to reduce carbon emissions and reduce the county’s electricity bill.

The current part-night lighting policy, combined with the switch to LED streetlights, has led to a 60 per cent reduction in carbon emissions from street lighting – avoiding almost 12,000 tonnes of CO2 a year – as well as saving Hertfordshire’s taxpayers around £5million a year on the council’s electricity bill.

However with most of Hertfordshire’s street lights now converted to more efficient LED lights with a central control system, it is now possible to dim lights and modify timings in specific areas, allowing more flexibility in the way we make the savings.
