Public Lighting Authority
Public Lighting Authority Task
The public lighting authority task is changing in recognition of the need to reduce energy and maintenance costs by embracing modern technologies and practises.
Each public lighting authority faces many common challenges including energy reduction targets, constrained budgets and occasionally a lack of in-depth knowledge of available technology caused by historic factors within the local authority.
Public Lighting Authority’s Changing Role
The public lighting authority role has changed from managing a maintenance contractor to actively managing its assets and searching out savings from strategic development and greater control of its inventory.
This welcome change in the public lighting authority role is bringing its own challenges. Not least, the additional necessary workload within the local authority which is not being reflected in staffing levels in most cases.
The Challenge for the Public Lighting Authority
The public lighting authority is faced with making further savings than currently being achieved to save money and meet the 2020 energy targets. The current practise of changing light sources may not be enough in the long term to achieve these goals, especially with the additional loads being added from unfinished residential estates.
