Neither do I. Current pretty much ruined GE's street light division, although it hasn't been a 100% failure.

It’s such a shame. Current’s products don’t deserve the GE emblem on them. Let’s hope they don’t ruin Kim Lighting or something.

Anyone know if GE stopped making HID streetlights before or after the divestiture to Daintree. It's a shame what happened to GE's lighting division and how the lamp and luminaire divisions got split up. Reminds me of what happened to Westinghouse back in the day.

I'm not sure what to think of this. Especially since Hubbell seemed pretty meh compared to Steber or Kim Lighting.

I believe Daintree bought out GE Current in 2018, then their HID offerings were officially discontinued in roughly 2019.
