    Here we go this is just a start.
    One of the first things we did was to figure out just how much power do we need.
    I looked at it this way, I just looked at my lights and other equipment that would need power and added up the wattage. If I did not know the wattage it is a safe bet that if you look the equipment tells you the current use (I.E. 5a or 5amps), If you take that number and times it by 15 you get a rough est for watts.

    So here is my basic figures:
    8 ( led lights) * 4 amps total draw=60 Watts
