Road Lights To be Dimmed in UK To Save Energy

Feb 25, 2012 No Comments by

Highway agency in UK has proposed to dim the street lights during less busy timings in a bid to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.

Research will begin soon to determine the best time bracket in which the lights could be dimmed without compromising security on A roads.

“The level of light reduction will be based upon internationally agreed standards and made in consultation with the UK’s Institution of Lighting Professionals,” said Mr. Baker a liberal democrat when he replied to question asked by Conservative MP Daniel Kawczynski.

Mr Baker added: “It is right that lighting authorities consider, in the interests of cost-saving and the environment, whether lighting can be sensibly dimmed or turned off, consistent with proper safety assessments.”

The other reason to dim off lights is to reduce carbon footprint associated with the energy used to power these lights.
