Nice to see new installs of HID lights. LED is so glary and boring!

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

Yep! I notice the reflection from the blue sky, I think they use 175w MH lamps.

NEW metal halide installation?

Also, can you get a close up pic of the lamps?

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I've seen cities still install HPS streetlights!

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

-Date decoder of some US lamps 1960-present.
-Switch and receptacle collector.

That's not too uncommon, it's just really weird to see a new metal halide installation when all new constructions I have seen within the past 3 years have used literally nothing but LED everywhere.

Yeah I don't think I've seen much new metal halide installations within the last 3 years. As for new HPS, they recently opened a new overpass and it was all lit with HPS. I believe the City of Toronto still uses HPS and Metal Halide for spot replacing fixtures though.

I see new HPS regularly but have not seen any new MH recently. Have even seen a few new fluorescent installs, even though they are all T8 and T5. Still beats LSD!

I'm not sure that my camera phone can zoom super close to the lamps. I may have to try it someday.

And these fixtures were installed a year ago? What a waste of perfectly good MH lamps and ballasts. All for junk corn cob LED's that won't last more than a couple years.

Should have been around in the mid-late sixties when incandescents were hitting the trash bin everyday for mercury vapor. Some of the fixtures were not even a year old and some were still in their respective manufactures boxes in the warehouses but chunked anyway. Incandescents in the South fell very quickly in favor of MV.
