Just wandering if someone could help me figure out if 5 of these lights would be too much for a 20 amp circuit breaker. The tag is on the top of the light. There are two connectors coming out of the light with 3 wires each, does that mean there are 2 ballasts and does the tag account for both?
Thanks Warren

The wiring in the pictures is just temperary. I needed to hook 1 up so that I could get an idea how many lights I might need.

That's more then enough. Could have done it with 14-2 15 amps.
When I run mine I like to just mount a nail on box to the joist and use a cord that plugs in. This way I can disconnect it and still have the other lights work if it needs to be worked on or removed later to add sheetrock.
Those connections can not just be hanging in the air like that. They need to be in a juntion box.
