Three cheers to Kent County Council who from a little snippet on their web site, I have gleamed that they are about to invest £1.77 million replacing 18,000 bulbs which are currently standard incandescent bulbs with energy saving versions throughout the County’s traffic lights. 

With another hat on I have been looking for good examples of Local Authority leadership to put forward as best practice on the Local Government Climate Change Commission.  It’s this sort of example I think which leads the way and should be thoroughly applauded both as an act of visible political leadership and on the basis they tell us this will pay back in less than five years and astute investment on behalf of the voting public of Kent.

Any other good ideas out there which we can organise around?
