Ecocycle’s main focus is on preventing the mercury contained in the old streetlights from ending up in the environment. However, the energy savings delivered by the new low-energy lighting provides an additional bonus on the mercury front. Coal-fired power stations are a major source of mercury pollution, so that big reduction in energy demand for street lighting leads to a similar reduction in mercury released into the atmosphere.
