Okay so the electricity bill is too high, and it's time for me to upgrade with a focus on efficiency and quality. Right now I'm running 3 1000w hps lights and 2 400 watt halides. Pretty much all magnetic ballasts. Fucking expensive. So I'm going to replace the magnetic ballasts with electric, but I'm seriously considering going with 2 electric 600w for every 1000w. So I'm thinking I could get more lumens out of 2 600w than out of a single 1000w while using about the same electricity. Has anyone else experimented with this? Are my estimates sound? Im thinking I could also get a larger grow space with the extra lighting. Thanks in advance! Tldr: I want to replace 3 1000w magnetic ballasts with 6 600w electronic ballasts. Am I an idiot?
