I will compare this to 400w MH and HPS lights.
Center Lux @ about 21.5" 13,780 was around 5,500
Side Lux @ about 22.5" 6,260 was about 1,600
EBay Lenses 50mm, adds about $10 but now only have 3 9-10w lights and 1 4w light.
I'm thinking 3 bulb system with lenses - 2 5000k 60w (8-9w true) bulbs and 1 12w(true) grow bulb should be enough to even grow a pepper plant or possibly patio tomato.

Always better to know...150+ does seem too high but 130-ish should be fine, imho.
