17 years ago the ones who installed the original lighting could use PL if they thought White light is required. Apparently, they didnt - Its just your preference

17 years ago they did install PL- in some of the rooms inside the building.  Which I am also slowly converting over to incandescent/CFL/LED screw-in bulbs as the ballasts go kablooey. Smiley  17 years ago energy efficiency was using low wattage HPS on the outside.  But times have changed!  I'll get you some photos to compare.  there are still 2 entrance ways on the outside of this building that run the 35W HPS.  At least until those ballasts/starters go kablooey, which is likely to happen soon given how the others have already gone out.  Also- the wall fixtures are really crappy design in my opinion, if they were a good style wall pack/fixture that distributed the light better, I would have no issue leaving them HPS and getting the gear to replace the failed HPS stuff.  But budgets are tight right now so we have to make do with ol RyGuy conversions.

Today I changed out a few EoL F32T8s and a F32T8 ballast.

@RyanF40T12:
If you like Christmas lights/decorating at all, the guys there have some really cool stuff! Its usually a fairly small group, feel free to attend (anyone is welcome, there is no "offical" group or signing-up/costs/etc).
There'll be another meetup in January (probably the last weekend of it)...If you want I can send you details sometime around mid-Jan.

Sounds good.
Should be Jan 27, but I'll let you know forsure once they post info on it.

As for me today.
Hung up a 2xF96T8 fixture (only 1 lamp in it though, and as a temporary/test thing). not sure if I prefer it or the group of small LED things better.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

We struck up our 'Lamp of the Day' which is a B22d-3 80W MBF/U that was my first contribution towards our collection of lamps.  Cool Cool

Bought a dual-wattage 80/125W MV ballast to build into a box to power either an 80W or 125W MB(F)/U lamp.

Thanks to Colin for the heads up Grin

I assume so, given that the original British tubes were designed to run from mercury ballasts.
