    100a panel you have a little room to expand. I would see if it is possible to upgrade to 200a if not see what breakers can be combined. You can also get the mini double breakers its the size of a regular breaker but you can connect 2 110 loads to it. Move a few breakers around to balance the load. Then I would do 2 different sub panels 1 for veg say 30a or 40a and 1 for flower 50a-70a

    I know here is some diy for cob by growmau but does anyone know of any manufacturer that produce quality cob lights? I don't have time to diy the cobs

    So I notice the panel is rated for 150amp. Would it be possible the place has 150a? Or is it pretty typical for 100a unit to use 150a panel box?

    Honestly I would get the breakers I was talking about and double up a few of those 20a. Then you will have room to add the 2 subpanels balancing the load is easy make sure there is close to equal amount on each side.
    There is in no order

    So I found out a couple of things. Building has 8 suites and some unit has 200a as they around two story's. I got electrical guy coming tomorrow to see if they can upgrade the panel in my suite to 200a.

    They think it's doable since other suites has 200a

    So I'm about to buy equipment and with this tent setup should I go with air cooled hoods or open?

    Also if I run ac I think it might be cheaper to get those dual hose portable ac with would be 12-14k btu rather than a mini splits.

    Just read the first post...your air conditioning is SERIOUSLY LACKING. Get a mini split or 2. If your gonna play...you got to pay. No way around it..especially with 10000 watts. Believe me....ive tried. Even with the best designed and set up air cooled hoods. ..with that much wattage...a.c. (And the correct a.c.) is an absolute MUST. Cheap dual hose mom and pop home depot a.c. units arent gonna cut it. Get the right tools for the job or you will regret it (usually at mid flower - been there done that) and shit canning and redoing what you already did sucks big time and drains the wallet more than dropping the coin and doing things right the first tjme.

    To be honest..and no disrespect meant at all...i can tell from your posts that your ambition outweighs your readyness and talent. Air cooling the hoods and using tents and dual hose portables? Nope. The pros dont air cool (at least most). They cool a room (a well built one - not a tent- hobbyist level) with industrial grade mini splits and commercial grade dehueys. I know you gotta start somewhere but you better do some research on how the pros really set shit off or your gonna be a dog chasing an very expensive tail. Believe what i say. Iam trying to help.

    Like i.said....you better know all of this 110 vs 220 amd what.is 3 phase warehouse wiring stuff...WAY before you jump in the pool. And i wouldnt bother with a tent with 10,000 frikin watts thats for damn sure. In a warehouse or not.

    Looking forward to seeing ChilLED lights in action, if Mau5 likes them they have to be good.
    Good luck with your venture.
