Portsmouth City Council has taken the first steps towards saving more than £400,000 a year by upgrading street lights using new energy-efficient LED technology.

Replacing 14,500 street lights with a LED light will reduce the council's electricity consumption by around 40%, which means an estimated annual savings of more than £400,000 once the project is fully implemented.
