City officials are seeking permission to install more LED lights in the Civic Centre Parking Ramp.
Racine became the first city in Wisconsin to install LED lights this year. The new lights, which use 20 percent of the energy and last at least three times as long as normal lights, were installed on Spring Street just west of State Street, 21st Street and Taylor Avenue, and on South Memorial Drive from 16th to 18th streets.
The city's public works office will ask the City Council Wednesday night for the OK to apply for a grant to pay for the lights.
Ann Arbor, Michigan replaced all of its street lights with LEDs in 2007. It expects to pay for over 1,000 new fixtures in under four years with energy savings and fewer bulbs changed.
