Despite this, many authorities are telling us that their LED replacement projects will take between 5 and 10 years to deliver, starving other services of cash and pushing the return on investment (ROI) out to 20 years.

“I just wanted to thank everyone involved in replacing the old sodium orange street lights with the new LED soft white ones. It had made such a difference when I go out at night!
