GREAT!!A step in the RIGHT direction.Now if Trump would reverse the silly,STUPID ban on mercury lamps.That would be the best news.
Mercury lamps were (fortunately) never banned. Do you mean ballasts?

There is no ban on mercury lamps AFAIK. Only on the fixtures and ballasts.

The mayor, Denis Coderre, has decide to go with 3000 K LED systems. The retrofit will pay for itself in 12 years instead of 8 years (I've assumed that they're more expensive or higher wattages are needed?). I believe there are no subsidies or incentives involved, just payed for from coffers. Hope they have a good waranty on the products.

Here's a simple but weird dream: I was suggesting that a small building install a couple of bucket lights, but then they installed lots of every kind of bucket light you could imagine! They even changed the sign to say something about bucket lights.

AWESOME news, Dave. Grin Crisis averted! Let's hope he reverses their decision to ban most current F32T8 lamps in 2018 (leaving mostly 25W F32T8s with CRI over 87)

250 is a bit much. According to manufacturers specification sheets, 150 watt HPS, or 175 watt MV/MH is max for small cobraheads. My 150 watt HPS M250R2's acrylic refractor gets pretty hot.

Re mogul 3 way bulbs. I think there're adapters for three way moguls where you can put a 3 way medium bulb in. I think the 3 way moguls just fell outta popularity over the years.
