I have 3 shop lights in a detached garage that currently plug into GFCI protected outlets. GFCI occasionally trips when turing the lights on/off. Nothing seems wrong with the wiring, everything is properly grounded. I should note that the shop lights are cheap 4 foot duel T12 fixtures.
I'm looking to remove the outlets all together and hard wire the lights to eliminate the need for GFCI on that circuit. I have 25ft of 3 wire armored cable handy, and there are junction boxes within 2 feet of each light fixture.
My question is, is armored cable acceptable in this situation, or should I head out and buy some greenfield instead? Local municipality is using NEC '08.
