Electrodeless lamps can reduce relamping requirements and improve color rendering in exterior environments. This project retrofits the lighting system in Union Square Park in New York City. A New York State utility replaced the old system, which used 100-W high-pressure sodium lamps, with an electrodeless fluorescent lamp system that reduces relamping frequency and improves color rendering and visibility of people in the park.
