From edie.NET on 16th February:
‘Scotland is currently lit by more than 900,000 street lights, costing local authorities £41m a year in electricity charges. These lamps also release 200,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. Total investment from Scotland’s councils in LEDs is predicted to reach £337m by 2021 and is forecast to deliver energy and maintenance cost savings of £1.2bn and save 2.6 million tonnes of CO2 over the next 20 years.’
It’s not clear from the report, and I can’t find any evidence of just how much of that £337 million will come from Scottish Government central funds, but my experience of tracing the funds used for affordable house building has been that the central funds have often been the greater part despite getting little credit in the reporting.
