Ballast Question.....

I think so - is a 30" T8 rated at 28w? I can't seem to find that size...otherwise that ballast is rated to handle 4-24" T8 or 4-36" T8s, so I believe that it should be able to handle 4-30"ers.

I believe the 30" bulbs are F25T8 - 25 Watts

At least I know the bulbs are 25W each.
