Title: Fluorescent, incandescent lighting converted to HPS

Abstract

The Consumer Power Co. has a 5-yr plan to convert 40,000 incandescent and fluorescent street lights in Flint, MI and surrounding area to high pressure sodium vapor lamps. Test results showed these lamps would result in less glare, 40% more illumination, and 60% less energy cnsumption. So far more than 5000 new cutoff luminaires have been installed. In addition to energy conservation, their installation is credited with crime and accident prevention. (LCL)
