What??? You don't want to run your GE M250? What...did I see what I think I saw? Liking full cut-off optics! (I know what you mean...I'm thinking the same thing! )

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

The "big" lights are for when I'm working outside. These are for dusk to dawn, 35w TOTAL + the 50w PSMH on the rear ! I couldn't afford to run the big ones all night !

I think the biggest I'd run D2D, would be 175W MH/MV, or 150W HPS. The bigger ones are nice, but they to me are for 'just-for-fun' lighting. BTW, what do they charge you per kWH in Ohio?

AEP says their cost per KWH is .052 but with this fee that fee and the other fee it's more like .11 1/2 cents per KWH. The highest I've ever run D2D was 70 w HPS . My neighbor used to run 2-175w MV yard blasters D2D , I changed them to a pair of 30w LEDs about a year ago cause he wanted to cut the electric bill. They each seem to be about the same output as a 100w MH . So far, I'm impressed with them !

Hmmm...interesting. I would've thought that you rate would be higher than mine out here in the PNW. Over 90% of our power comes from hydro projects on the Snake and Columbia rivers. My kWH charge is 0.08 cents. I have fees too, but the electric utility is public and doesn't poke you for more money. The gas company, which is private, well that's another story...they find creative ways to taking your money.

I'd never run a yard blaster, but I would run cobra-heads probably in HPS due to yellow light being less glaring (especially a diffuse lamp) and the higher LPW.
