See that pair of clips next to the electronic ballast? That's where the preheat ballast was in the original version of this.
I'm not surprised they didn't change anything with the design of these .lol.

The solar farm folks are bullying farmers in my area for their land to put the solar farms on.
That seems like totally the wrong place to put solar. To me, out in the desert is a good place since the land isn't useable for much. And an even better place is the rooftops of city buildings (a space that is basically totally useless), plus in the city the power generated doesn't have to be transmitted long distances (so no line-loss)

Also we need more hydro plants. 
That can only be a very regional thing, allot of areas there isn't the rivers(or proper spot for a dam) to do it. Though I do agree it should be used more where it can.


And another that should be used more (abit one that can only be done in certain locations) is geo-thermal generation.

I've heard about the Philips ATLO II and Energy Advantage  suffering from dimming out to pink color fast.

The solar farm folks are bullying farmers in my area for their land to put the solar farms on.The intense bullying is something I detest.and the land IS NOT useable for farming when covered with the solar panels.and the solar power company dumps the equipment on the farmer-so at the end of its useful life the landholder has to dispose of the equipment-the panels and their mounts-this gets EXPENSIVE!!!Remember the landfills here won't take the panels and they can't be easily recycled.Sometimes the landowners have a difficult time saying "no".Now at least with windmills the land around them still could be used for other purposes.I am not a fan of these techs because they are expensive-take up too much space-unsightly,and in the case of the windmills pose a hazard to mirating birds-and the best place for these mills in in the birds flyways!also folks don't like the whooshing sounds from the windmill blades.These techs should be replaced by reopening updated coal plants and gas turbine-thermal plants-the exhaust from the gas turnbine heats water to make steam to run a steam turbine-turning another generator.Also we need more hydro plants.

@Froggy05: American members may mislead you or give you answers that related only to the US since their lamps and lighting companies are completely different and aren't sold in your country.
American Philips is a different company than the European one. And I bet that Westinghouse, American Sylvania, GE North American, and Philips North American, aren't relevant to you.
Non-LED lamps from Philips are good. Their CFL and HID lamps are of high quality. This is the American Philips that is crap in all field of lighting and not only LED.

No, not everything the American Philips makes is bad. Philips still makes most of their fluorescents at their Salina, Kansas, USA plant and they are of high quality. They also make their F15T8, PL-S, PL-C, PL-T, and PL-L at the former Polamp plant in Poland for the USA which are also of high quality. They upped the mercury dosage in their fluorescent lamps as well.

Solar and wind WILL NOT replace coal and nuke power-Solar and wind is just too sporadic as a steady power supply.Those are GREAT for battery charging or other small uses.Hydro-gravity power is the ONLY alternative "green" power source that really works.Make more use of it!And there is a problem with large solar farms-the panels cover the landscape so it can't be used for anything else-and after 5-10 yrs the panels are putting out from 10-20 percent less power.And disposal of spent panels can be a problem.Landfills don't want them-and they are difficult to recycle.
