Part night street lighting

Part night street lighting is where some lamps are turned off between midnight and 5.30am. We introduced this between 2012 and 2015.


During this time we surveyed and carried out risk assessments on over 26,000 street lights, consulted with 179 parish councils and over 115,000 residents to obtain local people's views on our plans.

We have converted 8,041 of our street lights, mostly in the smaller rural villages to part night operation. We've also permanently turned off 460 lights in rural or none residential areas.

The project has helped us save almost 1,200,000 kW/h of electricity and 650 tonnes of carbon per year.
