south east SD
I have/had 3HD 175 watt lights since 2000. One quit working so a guy I know can buy stuff for cost, so I called him and he said get LED'S and quit screwing around with HD lights. The HD blubs were crazy $$ to buy anyway.
Went to his supply house and got a LED outdoor light fixture and eye for around $200 in 2017. LED's are the same as the 175 HD for brightness, could have went to 400!! Ticket showed $400 full price!! Wired it up and work prefect ever since.
2 weeks ago another HD quit working and the last one was yellow and weak. Called my buddy again, went to the supply house and got 2 LED lights with photo eye's for $300. Put both up and they are working great. Nice white light, nothing yellow in all 3 now.
I do wonder how much on my electric bill I'm saving now??
