Your neighborhood street light is about to get more energy efficient.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Thursday that the city is replacing all 250,000 of its street lights with light-emitting diodes, known as LEDs.

The plan is expected to save at least $14 million per year.

New York's traditional street lights will have a slightly different look when the LEDs are attached.

Historic street lights will stay the same, but the bulbs will be different.

The city plans to have the all the new lights up by 2017.
