CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - City leaders heard about the wave of the future in street lighting.

Global Green Lighting is the local company that installed those bright lights at Coolidge Park.

They want the city to purchase their LED bulbs for street lights in downtown.

The owner says the city spends more than $3 million a year on lighting. But with his lights, they could save more than $2 million.

The total cost is $18 million, which the city attorney said isn't in the budget, but 6 million is.

Council will vote on the matter next Tuesday.
