The Portfolio Holder for Resources and Property will be asked to make a decision to invest £442,000 from the Net Zero Fund to upgrade West Suffolk Council owned streetlights to LED to offer £14,000 (after borrowing) financial savings and 82.25 tonnes of carbon savings by reducing the overall electricity consumption. Those streetlights upgraded to LED can then also be incorporated onto Suffolk County Council’s Central Management System.
