4-360
5-450
6-525
7-600
8-640
9-645
10-650

what did your letter say

…it coulda be coincidental…m bit riiight when I start hitting around 8500 watts in the warehouse alone they said they wanted to come check the meter to make sure it was working properly to avoid over billing… the guy never returned there message and they never contacted him again and never came out but the grow stopped with a quickness
