Morning All from Sunny Hobart, Tasmania.
I`m doing a full house/workshop reno and will be using LEDs throughout.
As the Solar Collectors will be taking most of the roof space of the workshop I have decided to try LEDs for the only light source in the shop.
Does anyone have any suggestions for the type of units to choose?
The shop measures 9metres by 7 metres.

This is a very interesting topic. I’ve just started exploring household lighting LEDs so I will follow this closely.

They might be a little more directional than you may like

advice from electrical wholesaler is to try LED conversions for fluoro tubes.
I`ll report back when I try some.

Have your say...
