Our plant has slowly been converting over to LED lighting. My office is still florescent unfortunately. At home I have completely converted over my house from incandescent. Next up I'd like to do my garage. Hoping the price of shop lighting will go down a bit more before I start to swap out those though.

Our lot is led lit, the front of the shop is sodium bulbs, the rest of the building and rear of the shop is florescent. My entire house is cfl 6k daylight bulbs except for my game room which is daylight leds. I need to convert my shop, it has a couple florescent lights but the 3 main lights are sodium bulbs. Granted once they warm up its like the sun is out but the cost of running them is insane.

Go to a Costco, they have LED shop lighting for a decent price (~30-40 a fixture)

These guys:

Amazon Amazon


They all link together too so you only have to plug them in on one end, or you could cut the plugs off and wire them into your existing switches.

They're pretty damn bright, have them installed in a coverall tent at about 15ft in the air spaced ~8ft by ~11ft

Ill have to try those then, maybe get the 8 pack and see how they do. Right now I have two 8 bulb fluorescent lamps in the ceiling with the 3 sodium bulbs. If those are bright enough maybe I can get away with 6 sets.

Why have some had such a difficult time coming remotely close to following clearly defined guidelines?

Good thing I didn't name names

Man I have the worst luck when it comes to used parts/components. I honestly have a 10% success rate with used parts
