General Electric Introduces improved Mercury lamp
Fairfield Conn.- Representative for General Electric Jason Chapman announced today on the release of an improved mercury lamp design that would be introduced in the U.S. as soon as 2010. It features an improved arc-tube and electrode design that increases the efficiency and light output to that better than an High Pressure Sodium lamp. It will also be allowed to be sold with Mercury Ballasts that can run the new lamp, but are not included in the 2008 ban. Also a new NEMA tag will be designed which will be a green color specifying that the new lamp is compatible with that fixture. Also the ballast can run older lamps, for all those collectors out there who wish to run their old lamps. More details to follow, this is lightman64 reporting live for Associated Press.

The future of street lighting is Induction, not nasty HPS lights or cr@ppy LED lights!
Preheat CFL's should make a comeback!
