Default Re: 4 foot LED shop lights

I converted my shop at home 2 years ago to 8' twin V strip 270 degree tubes . the difference in light and electric consumption is tremendous . I am saving nearly 20% on my electric bill since switching.
I just converted 16 2 x 4 4 tube fixtures in the building I moved my race shop to after the flood .
I only used 2 tubes in each fixture and the light output is tremendous for a 14' ceiling.

Installed Installed 7 250w LED High Bay Fixture similar to what Sean suggested. They provide excellent light. The negatives are the brightness which gets your attention to look up with the result being like welding flash but after a while the attraction stops. The other is the color temp which is up there 6k - 6.5k which is "daylight" where "cool white" about 5k is more comfortable. Daylight has been widely used in industrial, laboratory, and surgical settings as well as signage. Less power consumption and more light is worth it.

OK looking at 8ft LED tubes need some opinions 5000K OR 6000K? 65W OR 90W?
Cold weather has hit and the fluorescents are dying. 30 x 60 shop 20ft ceiling currently 8 2 tube fixtures.

Always use the brightest (color rendition) you can. Stay with anything 6000K or higher and also the highest wattage you can get.
