Sid Valley Street Lighting Conversion to LED Works Due to Commence
Some great news for the Sid Valley with all the works now being identified identified to convert the majority of streetlights within Sidmouth, Sidford & Sidbury over to LED & the works orders will be going to SSE over the next few days which means conversion works starting within the next couple of weeks.
As part of this work and installation the new lanterns will be fitted with the required cells to permit them to be monitored & controlled via the Telensa base station that we have installed in Sidgard Road........... This enables the lighting to be controlled remotely from Exeter and will also enable faults to be identified reducing the need to carry out scouting.
Unfortunately the ornate lanterns that are in situ in various locations around the town centre and Esplanade will not be converted during the first batch of works as separate orders need to be made due to the lead time for manufacture & delivery of the new lanterns but these will be converted over to LED at a later date this year.
