Fore Street and Queen Street in Seaton have eight necklaces of lights and each necklace contains 30 x 60 watt bulbs, making a total of 240 bulbs. This means 14,000 watts per hour. These lights, during the winter months, are on for 14 hours per night. This totals 201,600 watts of light pollution per day. Winter is three months, say 90 days, which means 18144000 watts or 18,144 kw. There are adequate street lights in both streets, so why this unnecessary expense ?B CoxFore StreetSeaton
