    Thanks you guys for the advice. I received my light today. I love it! I only have one problem. Now Im going to have to get an electrician out to get more power for the greenhouses. I guess I can't run 6 flourescents, 3 heaters, 1 humidifier, and the HID light. Well as soon as I can get that fixed Ill be good to go. I will post some pics up soon!

    Thanks again

    One suggestion to you. If your lights are multi-tap, meaning that you can wire them to different voltages, you may want to go with the higher voltage. If you do that you may not need to get more power to your greenhouse because the higher the voltage you use the less amps you use. If you use less amps you may have enough juice in your greenhouse already. If you have any questions about this just ask, I'll be glad to help.

    Do they run 240V lines out to greenhouses normally?

    Do you know if the main line going to the greenhouse is 2 wire and a ground or 3 wire and a ground? If it is 3 plus a ground then it's 240v.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
