In a clarification letter released on August 14, 2017, these lights are not being discontinued as of now so whoever said that GE was pulling the plug on these lights either got their facts mixed up or lied about it. However, the demand for these lights isn't what it used to be. Sales have gone down as the market continues to move towards LED's. Declining sales numbers definitely put them in jeopardy of being discontinued. GE discontinued a lot of HID lights including the M-400R2 by the end of 2015 due to poor sales and in January of this year, they discontinued all of their metal halide options. Many power companies still use high pressure sodium street lights so they should be safe for now.

Yeah I do not like when people post things like that before verifying their information. I contacted G.E. and they told me they were not discontinued. As far as I know FPL has no plans to go LED. They have been going around replacing the photocontrols on all their lights with those new node things. My thought was, why would they be doing this if they had any plans of going LED? If they did it would make more sense to just wait to replace the photocontrols with the lights at the same time. Otherwise it's a major waste of time. And it's not just my town. Neighboring towns hours away from me serviced by FPL have the new nodes on their lights.

Duquesne Light offers 43 and 106 watt LED street lights to interested municipalities and they charge a $109 removal fee for each light that is replaced. They still use high pressure sodium street lights and there are hundreds of mercury vapor street lights in service as well, but they don't service them anymore. Any mercury vapor street lights that need new lamps or photocells are replaced with high pressure sodium street lights.
