Flexible finance options help investment in street lighting

October 2017 - (run time 23 minutes)

Greater flexibility in financing street lighting schemes should give confidence to authorities who are looking to improve energy efficiency and save money.

So if an authority is looking to upgrade its street lighting where can it turn?  One option is to consider an interest free energy efficiency loan, offered by Salix to public sector bodies in England, Scotland and Wales.

This podcast features an interview with Lindy Frey, programme coordinator for English street lighting. Matt Caville, programme manager for technical services and Alannah Powell, the company's PR and marketing executive.
