MV parking lot lights at a hospital (Late 60s/70s era) « on: May 20, 2019, 08:53:54 PM » Author: RyanF40T12
Today while walking out of a medical office on a hospital campus, I was treated to the firing up of a parking lot circuit. (weak photocell for this circuit) I had figured these cool old GEs had been converted to HPS or MH long ago but was delighted to see all but 1 were still MV!  Very rare around here.  Love these old GE Spaceship fixtures.  These are not very high off of the ground.  

This was taken at the Porter Adventist Hospital Campus in south Denver/Englewood area.  850 E Harvard Ave. Denver

Nice! Don't see many MV posttops around here. They're all MH, HPS, or LED.

LED fad off!
Fluorescent and low pressure sodium are best!

I wish there were a LED retrofit kit for these.  Keep the fixtures, just get rid of the old guts.
