But if you include prices of ballasts, isn't it more expensive to go with tubes?

Like when I build tube type, it was like $7 for tube and $20 for a ballast for 24". Well, I guess I should do some calculation first.

I would like the unit for use at my school where we may need to move it from time to time. The standard tube units that we have seem to weigh about as much as a small car.

Anyone know of any Canadian sources for the spirals?
