LED street lights are no more energy efficient that traditional sodium lights - the energy saving comes from the fact that the light output is less. No wonder the poor residents are stumbling around in the dark.
This is nothing but a scandal - and all the PR from the the council needs to be challenged.
Not only are LED lights far more expensive than sodium (negating the energy savings) but in order to match sodium for efficiency they have to emit a large proportion of the light in the blue part of the spectrum.
This is not only highly polluting but has been linked to disruption of sleep patterns, which in turn have been linked to cancer.
Time to call for a ban on these ineffective and highly polluting street lights.
