I am in the process of re-lighting my shop . Going with T5 4 or 6 bulb 48 inch fixtures. Not cheap,round 200-225 each. BUT ..was told they"d save me close to $1600yr on my electric bill . Had energy audit . Got hodge podge of 8 ft flour reg and HO . Some 400 watt Highbay lights,those things are the devil or almost free to find on Craigs list, but man do they run the meter up. Checked out a few shops with the T5 lights,wow daylight bright .

It is not being a T5 or T8 that makes then bright, its the rating of the bulb. I would stay away from Th T5s unless you like to replace ballasts.
We have them at work and have tried every ballast brand we can find, none of them hold up. The technology is not there yet.

My neighbor put in T5 fixtures with six? tubes per and boy are they bright. In the shop I'm rigging up in the cattle shed I hung up a few cheap household two tube T5's just to see what they would do and so far I like the light they put out. Jim
