I have a one plant set up with (2) 42w flouro's maybe two more in the next crop. For flowering I'm gonna use either 150w or 200w hps. Is their a high rate that I will be caught by police or is the elec. useage i'm using not sufficient enough to be detected for one plant?

Thats nothing in the grand scheme of things. Its when you have a couple of 100 watters gowing. You may see an increase of about 20 bucks a month. In the lightin section one of the stickies tells you ways to offset it. ;)

Look at the section on non-cultivitaion use of compact florous here:

I'd say no. My electric bill seems to be the same as it was before I started growing. I'm using 195 watts in vegg stage and then I switched to my 250watt HPS for fall. I did'nt even notice any change on my electirc bill. To be really tight about it just make sure all unnescescary lights and appliances are off. I never knew how much wattage I wasted until I started to grow my first plant.

Ooops. I re-read my post. I meant 1000 watters not 100.
