Ok, I am faced with a dilema. I can either go with SEVERAL Flourescent bulbs (4 x 48" and 4 x 24") or a pair of compact Flourescent fixtures.

Now here is how the cost breaks down....

Compact Flourescent
----------------------------------------------
110W 36" CF fixture - $260 Canadian
110W 36" CF fixture - $260 Canadian

Total Watts = 220W
Total Cost = $520 x 15% Tax = $598.00
----------------------------------------------

Flourescent
----------------------------------------------
Dual 48" Flourescent Fixture - $20.00 Canadian
Dual 48" Flourescent Fixture - $20.00 Canadian
Dual 24" Flourescent Fixture - $20.00 Canadian
