Re: [APD] Lighting Comparison

I have never seen the answer to this anywhere.  My memory is that the  
2 wpg number started to be used when only T12 bulbs were in use, and  
with white painted flat "reflectors".  Clearly 2 wpg of compact  
fluorescent bulb light in an AH Supply reflector is a lot more  
light.  So, this is an excellent question.
