I’ve mentioned these locations in the past but never linked them, so here they are just for reference. Here’s a group of some abandoned Norelco(Philips) SRPs in a parking lot on a vacant parcel in San Bernardino. These appear to be 135W SOX.

See Here

When I was looking around the infamous Queen Mary parking lot in Long Beach, I spotted where they were storing spare Norelco(Philips) SRPs, Spaulding Palomars, and other stuff on top of a shipping container. This is a older shot, they appear to be a mix of 90W and 135W SOX.

@joe, that was what I envisioned doing for the incandescent towns here. I plan to make a PDF to send to them. Belmont only has two incandescent fixtures and I’m not even sure if they would be replaced since they’re in a trailer park.

Be sure to include any pictures of the Harrisville program because they can be worth more than a thousand words. Steve Z did the restoration work on the fixtures. He can supply you with pictures of Harrisville's rebuilt lights (on display) and anything else that might be needed (particularly costs, how it can be done, etc.) perk up interest and get the ball rolling before the Eversource LED invaders clean out the town(s).

Considering most people get no choise whatsoever with these stupid leds, i encourage your voice to be heard, 2700k leds are better than 5000k by a long shot. :bulbman:

Show images and tell the story about what Harrisville, NH has successfully done in preserving their old lights that are using clear LED lightbulbs. Albeit, the converted/restored old fixtures there have been taken down, cleaned, rewired and inspected to meet the utility's standards. If the utility has agreed to go along with this in Harrisville, then why not elsewhere served by the company? (Eversource). I am sure the Harrisville street lighting committee would be interested in assisting any other NH communities who reach out to them. If there is any town up there that has no desire to keep the old fixtures they still have in service and prefer new LED ones, perhaps they could be convinced otherwise (by doing the above). Beyond that, if still they vision their incandescents as having lived a good life and no longer want them, then there is little chance anyone is going to twist their arm and make them think otherwise.

While you're at it, you should ask if you could save a few of the old lights.
I actually thought about including that in my email if I could obtain some, most are just M250R2s but they might replace some MV too depending on if they'll replace trailer park lights too.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm going to make a trip around scouting for any lights that will need a picture. So please excuse the excessive M250R2s that may be posted. I really hope it works out in my favor. I also plan to assist in new fixtures being placed and if any need a wattage increase or decrease, also this will be the first NH town to have black streetlights all over.

If you feel like there's a specific LED light that would work better then yes by all means send it!
Send in your opinion. Let yourself be heard.

Well...the neighboring town of Northfield has gone LED and I'm sure you can guess what they chose. I've had this wrote for about two years but have waited and I feel I need to send it. What is it you may ask? Well it's a email addressed to the town talking about an LED conversion using Black Leotek ComfortViews in 2700K. I ask for your thoughts because I'm ready to hit send at this point due to the fact that the Affinity invasion will hit Belmont if I don't act.
