Put two electricians from two different companies in a room together and tell them to do any job. If they are both masters from different areas, they will each have a different approach to the same job.

If you and I worked together, we'd probably fight like cats and dogs, but at the end of the day, we'd do beautiful work.

Goodnight Petey!

Hi Guys:

Thanks so much for the info.
Yes #12 wire, 20 amp breakers.

I guess I better run an additional circuit.
12 each circuit. 12 x 150 = 1800 watts.

I had the one circuit all roughed in and originally was just going to run
4 flourecent fixtures but than changed my mind. That's why
just one circuit was originally run. I was just thinking if I had all 24 on one circuit and used 75 watt bulbs it would still only be 1800 watts.

Thanks again.
