So, everyone on here is always talking about popping circuits and gigantic electric bills. I figured you guys might get a kick out of my current project...

I am working on an indoor aquaponics operation, meaning we are farming fish and using the waste-water to supply nutrients to food crops. To begin, we are growing tilapia and focusing on fast-growing greens and herbs. Our initial setup will have 250 12-bulb T5 fixtures, plus all heating, pumps, aeration, ventilation and controller systems.

Just the lights will be 162000 watts. It's gonna be one hell of an electric bill.

May I suggest while you're waiting for the fast-growing greens and herbs to mature, feed your tilapia Five double cheeseburgers, Four large fries, Three orders of chicken nuggets, Two large shakes, and One 64oz Coca Cola...  Grin
