COnverting to remote ballast MH lighting

14 years ago

Hello, this is my first post. I have been growing citrus for years down here in Louisiana and have been approached by a chef to produce zuchinni flowers all winter. Here is my problem. While setting up my greenhouse is coming along nicely I will need additional lighting. I came across many many 400 watt MH ballasts. They re not remote ballasts. (Think high school gym lights. The ballasts are attached to the reflectors) I can not support that much weight from the roof of my greenhouse so I want to make them remote ballast systems. Does anyone know if this can be done? What guage wire to use? Im sure I can remove the sockets and run wires up to the reflectors, I just dont know where to start. THanks
