All street lights to be LED by next year

All street lights on Hackney’s public highways are set to have an LED lantern by 2023 – reducing energy consumption from street lights by up to 60% and helping to tackle the climate crisis. 

The Council’s Cabinet this week approved £1.25m to update the remaining 1,124 of Hackney’s street lights that do not have an LED lantern. 2,394 new LED lanterns were installed in 2021/22. 

The programme is part of the Council’s ambitions to rebuild a greener Hackney after the pandemic as part of its ambitions to reach net zero by 2040.
