As part of its investigation into the leaving on of lights in empty buildings continues, Assembly Members on the Environment Committee will tomorrow question a number of witnesses on how building owners could be encouraged to switch off unnecessary lights.
The investigation, which was announced earlier this month, is hoping to discover more about why businesses and public services in London leave lights on as well as looking at potential advantages and disadvantages for different entities of turning off lights overnight.
At tomorrow’s meeting AMs will question witnessed from within the Greater London Authority as well as representatives from local government, action groups and popery owners.
At the time the investigation was announced, Committee Chair Darren Johnson said AMs “want to see if there is more that the GLA and the Mayor could be doing to enable and encourage workplace lights to be switched off when they aren’t needed.”
The meeting, which is open to the public, will take place on Wednesday, 1 December from 10am in Committee Room 5 at City Hall.
