Wow great info. I had issues in my previous place where i would always trip the power. I know very litte regarding eletricity. I was running a veg and flower set uo in 1 room. 1 600w light and ballast, 1 4in exhaust and a few air pumps for flower and anyhwere between 8 and 12 43w cfl's. Now I understand the need to space out the load! Blew out my damn 42in flat screen from not having a surge protector

If your lighting controller doesn't have its own overcurrent protection you have to rate your breaker to protect the controller thus you would size your breaker based on 4k ,which is 16.66 amps at 240 v . Then you would need a 20 a breaker .
