We use a remote monitoring system called Mayflower to control the street lights in Hampshire. This system allows us to dim the lights remotely and almost instantly change light levels from a central point. The scheme aims to save energy and reduce crime, using more energy efficient lamps, reduced burning hours and dimming lights to reduce carbon emissions
As the street lighting contractor for Hampshire County Council we are responsible for clearing foliage which directly obscures street lights.
It is usually possible to move an existing street light a short distance to allow for a property alteration such as a dropped kerb.

A computerised monitoring system automatically checks each light every night and reports any faults directly to us. Units are manually checked at night approximately every 14 days in the winter and every 28 days in summer.
When a fault is reported we attend site within three business days to repair the fault, or report the need for more extensive repairs. In these cases repairs may take an additional 10 to 25 days to correct.
Hampshire County Council owns many of the street lights across the county however they do not maintain:
