THE lights are on at Lincolnshire County Council…but they are costing less to run.
A new lighting system has been installed at the authority’s Lincoln headquarters, saving £28,000 a year.
The daylight-sensitive lights will also reduce the authority’s carbon emissions by 125 tons each year as they turn themselves off when a room is empty.
Coun Eddy Poll, executive member for economic development, said: “It is also another way for us to guarantee future cost-savings, which is particularly important during the current financial climate.”
The county council has set itself a target of reducing CO2 emissions by 20 per cent by 2012.
