This technology allows the council to control all street lights from the same location making it easier for them to control their ‘Part Night Lighting’ scheme.

Rodney Bass, County Councillor, said: “The new system will ensure that we manage the 125,000 street lights more efficiently and effectively to improve service levels while reducing energy costs and helping meet our carbon reduction targets. It also gives us the ability to manage lighting defects more effectively.”
