Question about the change ()

Bill, I have "upgraded" some of my t-8 fixtures with LED bulbs as the t-8's started to give me problems. My local ACE hardware sells a Westinghouse LED tube (~$15 ea., so about $30 per fixture) that eliminates the ballast. You get new tombstones and the instructions are to wire directly to 1 tombstone, bypassing the ballast. I removed the ballast as I re-wired. I'm not sure I saved any money in re-using the fixture, but I have an issue with throwing away a fixture that could be re-wired. I'm happy with the light - I think they are 5000k, don't know the lumens. They seem brighter than the t-8's that I still have.
